  37°N 15°E (visit #4)  

#1: North

(visited by Captain Peter, Werner Furlan and Heinz Huthmann)

25-Oct-2004 -- Dr. Werner from Austria and Heinz from Germany decided to spend a week with me at my home in Sicily. They arrived yesterday in the evening and the first thing to do on Monday was a visit to a Sicilian confluence. We agreed on visiting 37N 15E, which is quite easy.

As usual for this confluence, we stopped our car at the famous road sign which has not been changed, yet.

From the road it is about 150 metres to go to the point, where we took photo's in direction North , East and South. After a group picture Werner found a beetle and some flowers.

Then we continued for about 30 km to Noto, a town with a lot of marvellous buildings from the late Baroque Epoch.

Finally we climbed on a church tower and made our last photo towards the sunset.
