29-Sep-2002 -- This confluence is near the route to Chiador, MG, Brazil, in the rigth margin the Paraiba do Sul River, opposite margin of Anta.

To arrive there take the BR040 from Petropolis to Tres Rios, pass the booth of railway patrol and exit to Chiador. Here starts the gravel road. After the village of Maria Braga, follow 2 km, in main road and exit to right near some Bambus. Then follow the road till Didi Farm, natural passage to cattle and donkey to Pimenteiras. Follow the trail and near the tall top, before descending, climb the little hill, and descend a little, here is the confluence.

Interesting day, lovely people, and not so far from my town.
