Series on the State of MATO GROSSO DO SUL - MIDWESTERN Region of BRAZIL - # 006 !





DIVISA ENTRE OS ESTADOS DE MATO GROSSO DO SUL (ONDE ESTAVA) E SÃO PAULO (PARA ONDE VOLTAVA) - USINA HIDROELÉTRICA DE URUBUPUNGÁ !
THE BORDER BETWEEN THE STATES OF MATO GROSSO DO SUL (WHERE I WAS) AND SÃO PAULO (TO WHERE I WAS GOING BACK) - URUBUPUNGÁ HYDROELECTRIC POWER PLANT !

My parents moved to that region back in 1966. Três Lagoas (in the State of Mato Grosso do Sul = MS), Castilho and Andradina (in the State of São Paulo = SP) were the main towns around in the area where the JUPIÁ or URUBUPUNGÁ HIDROELECTRIC POWER PLANT was being built in the border of the two States, in the PARANÁ RIVER! They were pretty small and had almost nothing! As time went by, all of them got lots of improvements but TRÊS LAGOAS was the one that grew more and it's still growing!
I was visiting my parents back in july this year and we went to Três Lagoas to visit some relatives (a cousin had just had a baby)! I took this picture on our way back as we started to go across the border on the Hydroelectric Power Plant, where my father worked from 1966 to 1983 !
