Photographer's Note

This is the Quitandinha neighborhood in Petrópolis, the first entrance to the city when you come from Rio. Its altitude is of aprox. 870m. The artificial lake has the form of the Brazilian map and it is part of the Hotel Quitandinha, which was one of top cassino hotels in Brazil before the government turned them illegal. It is also home of LNCC, a government research laboratory in scientific computing, on the middle-right part of the photo.
