03-Oct-2015 -- Salimos de Resende (Rio de Janeiro) rumbo a São Thome Das Letras (Minas Gerais), un pueblo pequeño entre las sierras, que suele ser destino predilecto para muchos hippies.

La ruta para unir estos dos puntos cruza la Serra da Mantiqueira por el camino pavimentado mas alto de Brasil, la ruta BR-354 que en Garganta do Registro llega a los 1669 mts en el límite de estados.

Siguiendo adelante por bellos caminos de montaña pasamos por São Lourenço, pueblo con un gran afluente de turismo termal, donde tomamos la ruta BR-383 que poco más adelante pasa por Soledade de Minas.

Dentro de los límites del municipio de Soledade de Minas se encuentra la que se trasformaría en mi primera visita exitosa a una confluencia, específicamente a la 22S 45W.

Es muy fácil de visitar, ya que la ruta BR-383 pasa a escasos metros del punto exacto. Como referencia en la mano de enfrente de la ruta existe un establecimiento a cuyo costado sale un camino vecinal de tierra, y algunos cientos de metros adelante existe un gran cementerio de autos.

Entre la ruta y el espacio abierto donde se encuentra la confluencia hay un desnivel que no llega a los 2 metros, el cual buscando el mejor lugar se puede salvar sin problemas, luego se deben caminar unos 40 metros. Al estar el pasto crecido, y con la humedad de la mañana, decidí registrar la confluencia sin poner el GPS en cero.

03-Oct-2015 --We left Resende (Rio de Janeiro) heading to São Thomé Das Letras (Minas Gerais), a small village between the mountain ranges, which used to be a favorite destination for many hippies.

The route to unite these two points crosses the Serra da Mantiqueira by paved road most high of Brazil, BR-354 to Garganta Do Registro route arrives at 1669 m States limit.

Continuing forward along beautiful mountain roads we passed through São Lourenço, a town with a large tributary of thermal tourism, where we took the BR-383 route which later passes through Soledade de Minas.

Within the limits of the municipality of Soledade de Minas is located my first successful visit to a confluence, specifically to 45W 22S.

It is very easy to visit, as the BR-383 route passes a few meters from the exact spot. As a reference in the hand opposite route there is an establishment on whose side leaves a local dirt road, and some hundreds of meters ahead there is a large cemetery of cars.

Between the route and the open space where the confluence lies there is a slope which is less than 2 meters, which looking for the best place can be saved without problems, then you must walk about 40 meters. Due to grown grass, and with the humidity in the morning, I decided to register the confluence without putting GPS to zero.
