#1: Soybean Field at the Confluence, Facing East

(visited by Fabiano Ferreira and aroldo marochi)

25-Nov-2003 -- I work with Research and Development of new Products for Agriculture in Mato Grosso State (Brazil West Central) and the Company I work with had transfered myself to Southern Brazil, so I had to show the area to the new PD guy, Mr. Marochi.

We´re traveling to Lucas do Rio Verde MT and I remembered that we were carrying my GPS unit and the confluence should not be far from us.

We decided to get to the confluence as soon as possible, because that could be my last chance and the night was pretty close.

The GPS pointed to the confluence at only 2 miles away from the road. We turned a left on a dirty road inside a farm (the farms are really large around here, thousands of acres). Finally we got in to a soybean field at half mile of the confluence, where we left our truck and started walking to the target.

No more than 10 minutes to get to the confluence. And we did it. Some pictures taken and we got out before anybody could notice our presence.
