(visited by Gerald Wolfe and Zelmar Reyes Montero)

04-Apr-2004 -- I found a reference to the confluence site last week, and noted that there was a confluence in Lima, Peru. It was already visited, in fact it's the only successful visit to date in Peru, but I could not let such an easy one get away.

Since I live in Lima, this was not a very tough confluence to get to and a good start on confluence hunting.

On Sunday, April 4, 2004, my friend Zelmar Reyes and I decided to find the point. I had no map of Lima with decent coordinates, but I had some GPS tracks that I had made from driving around the city, and by extrapolationg off the map and some local knowledge, we had a pretty good idea where to find the spot.

It's only about 20 minutes from where I live and we drove right to the spot, with the GPS guiding the final phase.

The indicated point is on the intersection of Avenida Santa Rosa and calle Minerales in a section of Lima called San Juan de Lurigancho.

At 11AM, we drove past, parked, walked to the site which on this day measured in the middle of the intersection, took the site pics, the GPS Pics and the one of the two of us. The elevation is 200 masl.

Pic#3 shows a view from the site looking East. If one gets hungry confluence hunting, there is cooked chicken to be had here.
Pic#6 is a shot of the GPS showing the coordinates. I could not get all zeros as the exact spot was in the street and the traffic was too heavy to go safely.
Pic#7 Zelmar and I in the intersection, the spot is couple of metres ahead of us.
