12-Oct-2015 -- Esta confluencia es una de las tres que conseguimos visitar en un viaje entre Resende (Rio de Janeiro) y Ribeirão Preto (São Paulo), con motivo del feriado del 12 de Octubre, día de Nossa Senhora Aparecida (Santa Patrona del Brasil).

El tercer día de viaje comenzamos temprano el regreso desde Ribeirão Preto (São Paulo) hacia Resende (Río de Janeiro). La mayor parte del camino lo haríamos por el estado de Minas Gerais, al cual llegamos luego de una hora de iniciado el viaje, en proximidades de Itamogi.

La fisonomía del terreno fue cambiando significativamente, pasando de São Paulo con un terreno ondulado con amplias plantaciones de caña de azúcar a Minas Gerais con un relieve serrano donde el café pasa a ser el cultivo principal.

No muy lejos del límite de estados, conduciendo por la ruta BR491 desde Itamogi hacia São Sebastião do Paraíso y ya en proximidades de la confluencia tomamos un desvío de tierra (el único reconocible) hacia la izquierda, que luego de un par de kilómetros nos dejó a 90 metros de la confluencia. Caminando por entre los corredores que forman una plantación de café llegamos casi al punto exacto.

12-Oct-2015 --This confluence is one of the three that we visited on a trip between Resende (Rio de Janeiro) and Ribeirão Preto (Sao Paulo), on the occasion of the holiday of 12 October, day of Nossa Senhora Aparecida (Patron Saint of the Brazil).

The third day of the trip we started early our return from Ribeirão Preto (São Paulo) to Resende (Rio de Janeiro). Most of the way would be in the State of Minas Gerais, which we reached an hour after starting the journey, in the vicinity of Itamogi.

The physiognomy of the field was changing significantly, going from São Paulo with ground undulating with extensive sugar cane plantations to Minas Gerais with a hilly relief where the coffee goes into being the main crop.

Not far from the border of the States, driving along route BR491 from Itamogi towards São Sebastião do Paraíso and already in the vicinity of the confluence, we took a detour of ground (the only recognizable) to the left, that after a couple of kilometers left us 90 metres from the confluence. Walking through the corridors that form a coffee plantation, we arrived almost at the exact point.
