Minha Srie sobre o Estado de So Paulo - O Estado onde nasci e onde sempre vivi - Regio Sudeste do Brasil - n 004 !

(My Series on the State of So Paulo - The State where I was born and where I've always lived - The Southeastern Region of Brazil - #004 !)

TUNEL DO TEMPO - TIME TUNNEL - This bridge is in the border of the State of SO PAULO (The Southeastern Region of Brazil) and the State of MATO GROSSO DO SUL (The Center-Western Region of Brazil) across the PARAN RIVER! I was there because my parents live in the last city before the border - CASTILHO - and I often visit them. This bridge was part of my childhood and I used to go there by bike with my friends! This image also reminds me of an old TV series I used to love when I was a child!

It's called FRANCISCO DE S Bridge and it links the westernmost tip of the State of So Paulo (in the city of CASTILHO) to the city of TRS LAGOAS (in the State of Mato Grosso do Sul), over the PARAN RIVER. It's 1,200m long! It's still used for trains and the railway that's seen in this picture is called "FERROVIA NOROESTE DO BRASIL" (Brazil's Northwest Railway), hence the bridge is also known as "PONTE NOB" (NOB Bridge).

There are two other WS versions in here (a wider view in the vertical format and another one in the horizontal format). I hope you'll all enjoy it!
