(visited by David Brew)

04-Jun-2005 -- I visited this confluence a couple of years ago but the photos I took were very poor and I never returned. The point is only about 30km from my home and is located just a few meters off the main road making access easy. The road is a turn off from the RS118, a narrow and poorly maintained bypass for Porto Alegre. On the saturday that I visited, it was busy with small saloon racing cars being trailered to the nearby Taruma International Racetrack in preperation for the weekend's racing.

The point is inside the grounds of the Ralf Winter Metalworks but as my GPSr was already showing close enough to count and the sun was too bright to get a clear photo outside, thats where I was. I actually walked through the gate which would have given me all the zeros but it doesn't count.
