27-Dec-2005 -- Aprovechando que viajabamos de vuelta de Punta Tombo, y siendo esta la confluencia mas cercana a mi ciudad nos decidimos a visitarla.
Era una de las que me quedaba por hacer en la provincia de Chubut Tanto Maxi como Mati tambien tenian un poco de ganas de conocer la patagonia.
Por lo tanto la conocimos bastante ya que tuvimos que caminar al menos unos 3500 metros hasta el punto y luego el retorno.Hecho que nos demando una caminata de mas de 1 hora.
Alli esta ves como recuerdo realizamos un pequeño simbolo indicando el cruze del paralelo y el meridiano. Algun futuro visitante nos podra indicar si este simbolo aun perdura.

27-Dec-2005 -- Since we where traveling from Punta Tombo , we decided to visit these confluence that is near my home city.
Maxi and Mati are visiting the patagonia, now they know a bit more of it after walking more than 3,500 meters to the point, a walk that took us more than 1 hour.
There we made a small sign with rocks that represents the meridian and parallel crossing. We expect future travellers to tell us if the sign still there.
