(visited by Georg Thomma and Stefanie Köck)

07-Dec-2005 -- This was my first confluence point, and so i feel very happy that I've reached it.
We started from Nueva Italia a village which sound nice but isn't... We drove with our car on road 120 in direction to Zicuiran, about 10 km after the bridge crossing the highway we passed a big river and about 500 m after that bridge we followed a small road to the left. We were still 10 km off the point, but lucky that we could follow this road until 1200m away from the point. In this valley farmer used to plant maize and graze their cattle, we only saw a simple lonesome cottage. When we left our car we felt so close, but 1h30 we knew how far can be 1200m.... We followed the arrow of the GPS and were lucky that the hill wasn't densely wooded.
We celebrated our success in a "cocina economica" what means cheap kitchen and after this we go on our trip to the Atlantic Ocean.
