Brazil and Uruguay - October 12th, 2010

Although scattered clouds dot the skies over coastal Brazil and Uruguay, the skies over two large lagoons near the shoreline remain clear. These two bodies of water are the Lagoa dos Patos and Lagoa Mirim.

Lagoa dos Patos, further north and tan in color, is located entirely within Brazil. Lagoa Mirim, also called Laguna Merín, is further south and brownish grey in color, and shared by Brazil and Uruguay.
