#1: Looking North.

(visited by Joao Carlos Teixeira, Alvisio Ely, Waldir Bettanin and Eurídice Teixeira)

20-Dec-2003 -- This was our first successful confluence visit. This is a region of small farms where catholic German immigrants and their descendants cultivate maize, bean and tobacco and also grow up chickens, turkeys and pigs. Cattle are only for domestic consumption.

The CP is about 100m from the road and very easy to reach. We got there without permission and the landowner, Mr. Marino Kunz, arrived while we were getting pictures but he was very agreeable and understood our purpose.

In the way back home we got lost but it's another story.
