For fun, and as a part of the volunteered geographic information movement, in July 2011 I contributed to the Degree Confluence Project. This is an "organized sampling" of the world's integer latitude and longitude confluence points. To read about my visit to 22º South, 60º West confluence point in The Chaco of western Paraguay, visit here: http://confluence.org/confluence.php?id=10686
