Greenish sediments line the southeastern coastline of Brazil. The city of Rio de Janeiro sits along the coasts of the Atlantic Ocean and the Bay of Guanabara in the lower half of the image. While Rio de Janeiro is situated on the western side of the bay, the city of Niteroi is located on the shores of the eastern side.

Moving further inland, a third city can be seen in the upper left corner: Belo Horizonte. The city is located in the São Francisco Basin, is built on several hills, and is completely surrounded by mountains.
