07-Oct-2001 -- It was a sunny day and we decided to do our last Catalan confluence (3 of 3).

Vilanova de Meià is a small village, 150 Km from Barcelona. The point is in a mountain place. There were fields of olives and almond trees, but the fire and the non profitability of the business, I suppose left the fields unworked.

The way was not difficult because we get the help of the stones putted there for closing the fields, but in some places the bad vegetation make the way closed.

Almost in the top of a hill, near a burned almond, we found the place. We put some stones together there, so if someone goes again they will find our mark. As we did in our former confluences, we found a good restaurant in the village of Pons, near there, and we did a typical autumn eat with mushrooms and meat from the region.

We enjoyed the day.
