O VELHO CHICO - O RIO SÃO FRANCISCO VISTO DO CÉU - "THE OL' CHICO - THE SÃO FRANCISCO RIVER SEEN FROM THE SKY - Traveling from SÃO PAULO/SP to JOÃO PESSOA/PB, I could, as usual, identify many geographical places down there, from the small window of the airplane. Here's the São Francisco River in the border of the States of SERGIPE and ALAGOAS, pretty close to its mouth! On my flight back home, we flew over the coast and could see its mouth. No pictures though, my window was on the wing of the plane... shooooot!!

2,830km long, the SÃO FRANCISCO RIVER starts in the State of MINAS GERAIS, in the CANASTRA Mountain Range, and it ends in the ATLANTIC OCEAN, right in the border of the States of SERGIPE and ALAGOAS. See map here !

The plane was already flying over the State of Alagoas and the municipality is probably PÃO DE AÇÚCAR or PIRANHAS!
