(visited by Joao Carlos Teixeira, Eurídice Teixeira, Elziara Teixeira da Cas, Henrique Teixeira da Cas and Victória Teixeira da Cas)

15-Nov-2004 -- I invited my newer sister and their children to visit this confluence in Tupanciretã, about 110 km from Santa Maria, taking advantage of the holiday of November 15.
After about 20 km of dirt road we arrived at the confluence place that is in a wheat field (recently picked). We passed about 200 m beside the point towards a house to talk with somebody and ask to enter in the field. We talked with a lady of the neighboring land and decided to visit the point without talking with the real landowner.
We've found the point close to a post (an electrical line passes over the plantation) and took the needed pictures.

Suddenly we saw a car that approached fast. It was the landowner, his son and their wives. They were a little nervous with our presence, because this area is subject to robberies and invasions.
After everything explained we left also affected by the unexpected approach. Arriving in Santa Maria we've found out that the landowner is the father of a friend of my sister.
