25-Dec-2003 -- Estava a passar o Natal em Vila Bela da SS. Trindade, quando atarde resolvi ir encontrar a confluencia S15o W60o,

A cidade e dividida em duas, separada pelo Rio Guaporé, logo cruzei o Rio pela ponte, no bairro denominado Aeroporto, quando localizei uma estrada de terra que ia ate perto do pe da serra, onde indicava o GPS cerca de 3 km para o ponto, logo acabou a estrada, e caminhei cerca de 2 km num pasto, quando divisa do pasto acabou e tive que entrar cerca de 100 mts. na mata virgem no pe da serra.

As I was ready to spend Christmas in the beautiful Village of the SS. Trindade, I decided to go find the confluence S15 W60.

The city is divided in two by the Guaporé river which I crossed into the area called ‘Airport’, when I located a dirt road that went close to the edge of the mountain range. The GPS indicated 3kms, then the road ended and I walked about 2 km in a grass field. When the grass finished I only had some 100mts on wild vegetation at the bottom of the mountain range.
