Patiess prieks, ka tik labi izdevies brauciens un, galvenis, jau ieguvums ! Interesanti būtu izveidot "konkursiņos" Strūves meridiānu cauri visām valstīm, bet liela atsaucība, baidos, ka nebūtu.

Manī tāda doma arī sarosījās, bet laikam jau lielākā daļa šejieniešu (es domāju P-mio) nav tik dulli, lai viena akmens dēļ kilometrus pa dubļiem brauktu vai ar kājām pa brikšņiem staigātu?

Ir jau arī viens cits serveris, tas gan nav čatošanai, bet tādai mazliet nopietnākai publikai. Es gan uz sitienu neatceros adresi, bet īsi sakot, tur cilvēki liek savas bildes no apaļo meridiānu un apaļo paralēļu krustpunktiem. Par lielu kaunu Latvijai ir jāsaka, ka visus septiņus šādus krustpunktus pie mums jau sabildējuši eiropas ārzemnieki - dāņi, islandieši, vācieši. :(

Bet kādēļ es to te tagad saku? Tadēļ ka manuprāt tas ir pierādījums, ka uz pasaules ir pietiekami daudz arī tādu cilvēku, kam dirnēšana pie TV vai kādā alusbārā nav tā augstākā prioritāte!

All the Unesco Struve points have been usually established with great glory and fireworks- view. Afterwards those lonely monuments become forgotten. Only the devoted folks travel to discover them. Say, Latvian authorities seem to maintain them good enough.

To Vilensija: thank You for comment! As far I know, only 2 points from seven(?) in Latvia (only in Jēkabpils and in Seistu kalns hill) are marked and preserved. Jekabpils point is easy to find because just in centre of city park, but Seistu kalns is far away from civilised roads and deep in forests even from dirt local roads.

I not been in this places after I made my photos, I cannot comment if there where well upkeept today. If I will get another chance go there, no problem of course, I will capture new series from there.

K. regards from Riga - Ainars
