12-Oct-2003 -- De viaje como les conté en la S33W64, ahora de regreso a casa, la ruta nos llevaría camino al Valle del Río Negro a través de los campos del Sur de Córdoba, en el camino por lo menos 2 confluencias nos quedarían lo suficientemente cerca para tratar de llegar a ellas, un solo problema en el horizonte...los toros... conforme avanzábamos por un camino abandonado paralelo al campo donde estaba el punto, la cantidad de animales aumentaba... tuvimos que sortear barro, pozos y hacer un poco de off road con la toyota, cuando llegamos al final nos dimos cuenta que por aquel lado sería imposible avanzar y estábamos a 900mts.. de modo que regresamos a la perpendicular de 600mts decididos a caminar pegados al alambrado sin despertar la atención de los toritos, a ver si teníamos un San Fermín Cordobés... :)

Vaya a saber porque Luis no quiso acompañarnos, de hecho se quedó "a cuidar la camioneta" según el... Gracias Luis!

En fin caminamos los 600mts fotos de rigor y cuando nos disponíamos a retornar, notamos que ya los Toros no estaban tan lejos... de modo que nos pegamos al alambrado y con paciencia y sin demasiados ademanes caminamos los laaargos 600mts hasta el vehículo, y aquí estamos, sanos esta vez...

As mentioned on S33W64 we are traveling, now on the way back home our route will take us to Valle del Rio Negro across the fields of southern Cordoba. In the way at least two confluence points that are close enough to attempt reaching, the one problem ahead … the bulls. As we made progress through and abandoned road next to the field where the point is the amount of animal grew. We had to sort mud, holes and to make a little off road. At the end we realized that from the route we chose it would not be possible to make it, we were at 900 meters.

So we went back to the place that was only 600 meters. We decided to walk close to the fence and try not to stir the bulls. Your guess is as good as ours at to why Luis decided to ‘stay behind and keep an eye on the vehicle’ … thanks Luis!

Well, we made the 600 meters, took the photos and, when we where about to go back, we realized that the bulls where not that far. We traced our steps back along the fence, very slowly and quietly, and made it safely back.
