#1: View to the North

(visited by Captain Peter and Werner Furlan)

17-Oct-2003 -- This morning Werner, although feeling better than yesterday, did still show a certain reluctant attitude to get out from his bed, and so I treated him a little bit with my broom handle, and subsequenty he got up quite quickly. So we could proceed on our track as scheduled.

From Azul we went to Olavarría and there we bent NW into the route 226 until San Carlos de Bolívar and thence on route 65 in direction NNE straight onto the confluence The 1:2,000,000 map on which our Ozi-Explorer in the Dell Axim is based is a little bit out of wack in some areas, as it can be seen on the track of our GPS. In fact the confluence is only a 300 metres W of the route 65.

We stopped our car exactly on latitude 36S, and we found a comfortable entrance. There were a lot of birds around a small pond.

A 250 metres away from the confluence there is a wind wheel, typical for Argentina and many other South American countries. It delivers the electric power for water pumps.

We took the views towards North, East, South and West and finally we made a "victory picture". After that we went back to route nr 65, on which we continued straight North towards the next confluence.
