"SOBREVOANDO O ESTADO DE MINAS GERAIS" - REPRESAS
"FLYING OVER THE STATE OF MINAS GERAIS" - RESERVOIRS
"EN SURVOLANT L'ÉTAT DE MINAS GERAIS" - RESERVOIRS

In my flight from SÃO PAULO/SP - GUARULHOS/GOVERNADOR FRANCO MONTORO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT to JOÃO PESSOA (Capital city of the STATE OF PARAÍBA/PB), MINAS GERAIS/MG, one of the largest brazilian States, was on our way and as we traveled high up on the sky, I could identify many places down there (only brazilians will know this name, probably: São Tomé das Letras was one of them). At this very moment, I was flying over the area around the towns of Carrancas, Conceição da Barra de Minas and Madre de Deus de Minas. I could clearly see this reservoir, one of the several ones that exist in the RIO GRANDE/GRANDE RIVER as it runs towards its final destination/mouth in the border of the States of São Paulo, Minas Gerais, Goiás and Mato Grosso do Sul, because it goes across lots of mountaineous landscapes (so, some hydroelectric power plants were built along its way). This one is small if compared to others that are the real "ocean" for the MINEIROS (people who were born or live in the State of Minas Gerais), because it's one of the brazilian states that does not have a shoreline!

SORRY, MY IDENTIFICATION IN THE PHOTO IS WRONG... I'M NOT N.PEÇANUK BUT N.PEÇANHUK !!!
