24-Jun-2012 -- El 23/06/2012, con Martín, Eli y yo visitamos la ciudad de Azul, lugar donde nacieron nuestros bisabuelos. Nos quedamos en el Hostel ”Chacras de Azcona”, un lugar cálido y calmo, a 2 km de la ciudad.

Así que el Domingo a la mañana, luego de unos buenos mates, empezamos nuestro paseo para visitar esta confluencia. Hicimos unos 30 km, estacionamos nuestro vehículo y cruzamos un campo de soja hasta llegar al Arroyo ”Del Azul”. Martín se quitó la ropa y fue el primero en cruzar, sumergiéndose hasta la cintura. Elisa y yo encontramos un puente natural así que, una vez más, cruzamos el profundo arroyo sin mojarnos siquiera nuestras zapatillas. Finalmente, caminando unos 300 m del otro lado por un suelo chocolatoso alcanzamos el Punto de Confluencia, en suelo firme. Se trata de una clásica confluencia bonaerense, ubicada en un campo de pastoreo.

27-Feb-2012 - On June 23, with Martín, Eli and I visited Azul City, the place where our great-grandfathers were born. We stayed at ”Chacras de Azcona” Hostel, a warm and calm place 2 km from the city.

So Sunday morning after some mates we started our travel to visit this confluence. We made about 30 km, parked our vehicle and crossed a soya field to reach the ”Del Azul” Stream. Martin took off his clothes and was the first to cross, stucked into deep water up to the waist. Elisa and I found a natural bridge 20 meters away so, again, crossed the deep stream without even wetting our shoes. Finally, walking about 300 m from the other side by a chocolate mud spot we reached the Confluence Point, on solid ground. It's a classic Buenos Aires's confluence located within a grazing field.
