19-May-2004 -- Continued from 41N 27E.

It was not too difficult to find this point, except that we had trouble following the path with the car. Therefore, we parked and left it and continued by foot. We first had to go up a small hill, then we went over a meadow, and soon had to turn left as the GPS indicated us to do so. First we thought we had to walk through underbrush, but luckily it ended after a while and we were able to walk across the fields. As we tried not to damage too much, we first followed their boundaries, and only when it became obvious that the confluence point was in the middle of one field, we went across and found the point.

Actually, the way back to the car was more exiting as we met a shepherd and his two dogs that did a good job and started barking as soon as they heard us. The shepherd first ignored us but only when he realized that we really wanted to go closer to his sheep he stopped the dogs with a single word and they lay down only watching us carefully. The shepherd of course wanted to know where we were from; all Turkish people want to know that all the time. So we answered and exchanged the usual small talk and went back to the car.

Continued at 41N 31E.
