Série sobre o ESTADO DE SÃO PAULO - O Estado onde sempre vivi - Região SUDESTE do Brasil - Nº 010 !

(Series on the State of SÃO PAULO - The State where I've always lived - The SOUTHEASTERN REGION of BRAZIL - #010 !)

RIO CAPIVARA - CAPIVARA RIVER - This picture was taken right after I crossed the bridge over the CAPIVARA RIVER, between the cities of ANHEMBI and BOTUCATU. It's a small river but in here it looks like a lake because it's part of a bigger Lake formed by the PIRACICABA and TIETÊ rivers, some kilometers away from there!

The CAPIVARA RIVER is a brazilian river in the State of São Paulo! It starts in the city of BOTUCATU, runs to the north and ends in the TIETÊ river, in the city of PORTO MARTINS, near the city of SÃO MANUEL. It has only 30km!

There are two WS VERSIONS in here to show how the CAPIVARA river is a smal river and how it gets wider after the bridge, as it gathers two other bigger rivers!

(O rio CAPIVARA é um rio brasileiro do estado de São Paulo. Nasce em BOTUCATU, segue em direção norte e deságua no rio TIETÊ em PORTO MARTINS próximo a SÃO MANUEL, tem cerca de 30 quilômetros.córregos Araquá e Capivara.)


All over Brazil, Christmas has no cold weather, no snow! As a matter of fact, it's one of the hottest seasons of the year! Traditionally, most of us do the same things people in the northern hemisphere do, even eating a lot, which is not very good in hot days!
Xmas trees are put up, Santa Claus is everywhere (soaking wet in sweat) and Xmas songs are also all around! I always thought we should find a different way of celebrating Christmas in tropical places! Didn't find any, nor anybody did! It's Christmas time, anyway, and let's get into the real spirit of it, wishing happiness, peace, health, prosperity and real love to everyone all over our beloved PLANET EARTH!

MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL MY TE FRIENDS!
(FELIZ NATAL E UM FELIZ ANO NOVO PARA TODOS OS MEUS AMIGOS DO TREK EARTH!)
