28-Dec-2003 -- We arrived to this confluence coming from Northwest after treading more than 70 km of dirt roads although the distance between the confluence and São Mateus do Sul (where we live) is about 41 km straight-line. We choose the worse ways to challenge our skills and test the old jeeps. All right.

The CP is over a soy plantation close to an old cemetery about 19 km from Antonio Olinto, a small city inhabited mainly for descendants of Ukrainians, Polish and Italians. The region mainly produces soy and pinus elliotis for the paper and cellulose industry.
