Brazil - December 21st, 2010

This image of eastern Brazil shows the cities of Rio de Janeiro, along the shores of Guanabara Bay below the image center, São Paulo, a large greyish-tan expanse at the bottom left, and Belo Horizonte, above the image center and appearing as a tan area amidst the surrounding green.

Belo Horizonte is located in the São Francisco Basin and is surrounded by mountains. While São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro have various hills, they are located on flatter coastal terrain.
