#1: The Spot 44N 21E

(visited by Goran Perunovic and Igor Simic)

20-Dec-2003 -- As winter is approaching, we decided to take advantage of the forecasted sunny weekend to visit another virgin confluence from our list.

The confluence 44ºN 21ºE is situated in central Serbia, some 140 km south-east from Belgrade, in the village of Jabucje, near the regional center, Kragujevac.

It took us 1.5 hours drive to get within 2 km from the confluence. I was possible to come even closer, but we decided not to drive down a steep road covered with ice, as the return might have been be quite uncertain. So we put on our boots and crossed some 2km of mixed agricultural terrain to get to the exact position.

The confluence itself is positioned on an abandoned farm, so we could look around the old houses, now completely ruined. Most of once agricultural land was covered with wild vegetation.

The morning was sunny but somewhat chilly, so we warmed up ourselves with a glass of very good "Confluence Plum Brandy" - slivovitz (but taking care of the blood alcohol limit tolerated by the police). We also tasted some wild fruits, wandered around for a while and when we felt like enough, we set of back to the car, and after a while we were on our way back to Belgrade.
