29-Oct-2008 -- Durante mucho tiempo estuvimos esperando la oportunidad, que en algún viaje por el norte argentino tengamos el tiempo suficiente para poder desviarnos y conquistar la confluencia 23° Sur 64° Oeste.

El día había llegado, salimos de Oran hasta llegar a Pichanal, tomamos la Ruta 34, y con Rumbo Noreste llegamos al acceso a los Yacimientos Chango Norte y La Porcelana, seguimos un camino de ripio que se dirigía hacia la serranía del Aguaragüe que continua en el Chaco boliviano. Orientados por los GPS fuimos adentrándonos en un campo, hasta que llegamos a solo 170 metros de la confluencia, entramos al campo caminando y después de esquivar un cultivo de cardo muy espinoso, llegamos a la confluencia.

La verdad resulto una confluencia muy fácil, a las que estamos acostumbrados a hacer en Bolivia. Tomamos las fotografías y muy satisfechos continuamos viaje.

29-Oct-2008 -- During long time we were waiting for the opportunity, that in some trip by north Argentine we have enough time to be able to turn aside to us and to conquer the confluence 23° South 64° the West.

The day had arrived, we left Pray until arriving at Pichanal, we took Route 34, and with northeast course we arrived at the access to the reservoirs to North Chango and La Porcelana, we followed a debris road that went towards the mountainous area of the Aguaragüe that continuous in the Bolivian Chaco. Oriented by the GPS we were entering in a field, until we arrived at single 170 meters of the confluence. We entered the field walking and after avoiding an area of very thorny thistle, we arrived at the confluence.

Really this is a very easy confluence, to which we are used to do in Bolivia. We took the pictures and very satisfied we continued trip.
