Portuguese

29-Dec-2002 -- We left Salvador toward to Feira de Santana-BA at 07:00 AM, on december 29, 2002. The group was formed by Jamal, Thiago and Rodrigo. When we arrived at Feira de Santana we got the BR 116 highway, in direction to Santa Barbara-BA.

After some minutes, the GPS indicated that we should turn left. We got into a non paved road that became in a labyrinth of smaller roads. We kept following the GPS indication until 300 meters far away from the confluence. We left the car and walked toward to the point.

The confluence 12ºS 39ºW was registered at 08:00 AM, December 29, 2002, in Sucupira Farm, Santa Barbara-BA.

Saímos as 07:00 horas da manhã do dia 29/12/2002, de Salvador em direção à Feira de Santana-BA . O grupo era formado por Jamal, Thiago e Rodrigo. Ao chegarmos em Feira de Santana, pegamos a BR 116, indo para Santa Bárbara. Depois de alguns minutos o GPS indicou que deveríamos entrar à esquerda. Entramos numa estrada de terra que se transformou num labirinto de estradas menores. Seguindo a referência do GPS, chegamos a 300 metros da confluência., deixam o carro e fomos andando até o ponto.

A confluência 12ºS 39ºW foi registrada no dia 29/12/2002 às 08:00, na fazenda Sucupira, no município de Santa Bárbara.
