24-Apr-2004 -- O grupo TocaBrasil saiu cedo de Brasília, por vota de 6 horas da manhã. A equipe da TVGlobo estava acompanhando o grupo para um quadro do Fantástico (Tele Jornal da TvGlobo, apresentado aos Domingos em rede nacional).

Saíram no Sábado com destino a confluência, que por sinal, foi uma das mais difíceis já conquistada pelo TocaBrasil. (Terreno bastante acidentado e de difícil acesso, o tempo também era curto).

Alguns dos que estavam presente chegaram perto do ponto mas não foram até o fim. A noite se aproximava e seria difícil carregar o equipamento de reportagem, desta maneira, somente alguns dos integrantes foram até a confluência fotografar o local, a vista do lugar e o GPS marcando a almejada coordenada 14ºS 49ºW.

Uns cançados, um machucado, mas enfim, tudo ocorreu como o esperado. As imagens foram feitas e a confluência conquistada. Mais uma para o Grupo TocaBrasil.

English

The TocaBrasil group left early from Brasilia by around 6 am. The TVGlobo team was following the group to appear on national tv on sundays.

They left on saturday to a confluence that was one of the hardest ever done by the group. The terrain was hazadous and with very little access and they had very little time to do it.

Of the members that did the confluence few acctually went to the acctual point itself. The night was falling down fast and it was going to be very hard to carry up the filming equiptment, so only the Hard-core members of the team dared to go to the final destination, to photograph the site of 14ºS 49ºW.

A few were tired and one with minor injuries, but all in all everything was expected and prepared for.
And there you go one more confluence for the books.
