07-Jun-2012 -- A confluência 32S 55W se encontra a pouco menos de dois quilometros da estrada de terra, que levei próximo a meia hora para vencer a pe', com gado e pasto baixo em sua maior parte e com pouco relevo. Pela pouca dificuldade em fazer o percurso, estranhei o fato de que ate' aquele momento ninguém ainda a havia visitado formalmente.

Não cheguei a falar com o proprietário das terras por não ser de fácil identificação (venci duas cercas, parecia haver uma casa mais distante) e pelo horário que avançava para o ocaso solar. A temperatura estava próxima dos dez graus Celsius com um pouco de vento (fez quatro graus negativos com geada na manha seguinte). Resido em Porto Alegre, Brasil, e fiz o trajeto ate' próximo desta confluência de motocicleta (Honda XLX 250), num percurso total de cerca de 1700 km (passando por Artigas) em seis dias (aproveitando o feriado brasileiro prolongado), numa semana em que a temperatura dificilmente passava dos quinze graus durante o dia, o que foi bem sofrido mesmo com varias camadas de roupa. Esta foi a minha terceira Confluência inédita visitada no Uruguay e a ultima que faltava para completar o pai.

07-Jun-2012 -- The confluence 32S 55W is a little less than two kilometers from a dirt road, which took close to half an hour to overcome, with cattle grazing and low for the most part and with little relief. By little difficulty in making the journey, I found strange the fact that until that moment nobody had never been visited this CP before.

Did not get to speak with the owner of the land because it was not easily to find (I won two fences but it seemed to be a more distant) and the time progressed and was close to sunset. The temperature was close to ten degrees Celsius with a little wind (made four negative degrees with frost in the next morning). I live in Porto Alegre, Brazil, and made the trip up to this confluence in a motorcycle (Honda XLX 250), and distance of about 1700 km (passing by Artigas) in six days (taking advantage of the holiday and extended), in a week when the temperature hardly passed the fifteen degrees during the day, which was well suffered with several layers of clothing. This was my third novel Confluence in Uruguay and the last visited that was missing to complete the country.
