En nuestro hermoso viaje por Italia, que hiciéramos mi esposa y yo, por la tierra de mis abuelos, nos atrevimos a “cazar” dos confluencias que estaban en las inmediaciones de los bellos lugares que recorrimos. La otra confluencia alcanzada fue la 41ºN 17ºE.

Después de nuestra hermosa estadía en la ciudad de Sorrento y de haber visitado la bellísima costa Amalfitana, Capri, Nápoles, etc. nos encaminamos hacia Roma para permanecer allí unos 3 días. Estudié los mapas y descubrí que, desviándonos un poco de nuestro cometido alcanzaríamos esta confluencia con relativa facilidad.

Efectivamente, después de algunas vueltas, encontramos un camino vecinal de campo que nos acercaría al preciado punto.

Grande fue nuestra sorpresa que cuando nos bajamos del auto comenzamos a escuchar tiros de escopeta. Nos asustamos mucho porque pensamos que nos estaban tirando a nosotros, pero después de verificar el lugar, advertimos que en las cercanías había un predio donde practicaban “tiro al plato”; así que toda la caminata la hicimos con ese incesante retumbar de los tiros y que a cada instante creíamos que nos podían dar a nosotros. Llegamos a nuestra confluencia y tomamos la foto de rigor, continuando nuestro viaje de vacaciones.

03-Oct-2008 --

In our beautiful trip to Italy, that I did with my wife, by the country of my grandparents, we dared “to hunt” two confluences that were in the environs of the beautiful places that we crossed. The other confluence reached was 41ºN 17ºE.

After our beautiful stay in the city of Sorrento and have visited the gorgeous Amalfitana coast, Capri, Naples, etc. we directed ourselves towards Rome to remain about 3 days there. I studied the maps and I discovered that, turning aside a little bit, we would reach this confluence very easy.

Indeed, after some turns, we found a local road that would approach us our target.

Great was our surprise, because as soon as we started to walk from our car, we began to listen to gun shots. We were scared so much because we thought that they were shooting to us, but after verifying the place, we noticed that in the neighborhoods there was an estate where they practiced “shot to the plate”; so we made this entire long walk with that incessant sound of the shots and that constantly we thought that they could hit us. Once we arrived to the confluence, we took the required picture and continue our holydays trip.
