Lagoa dos patos is not! a river it is

Life is an experiment, use the right tools and elements, and you'll do fine.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Actually it has become a very popular place, It is on local and regional news every single day...not for the spot on the picture I had put before, but the city (town) that I hope you can name.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

it doesn't look right but could it be Porto Alegre, Brazil?

River port
30.01S
In the news by virtue of it being a venue for 2014 World Cup.
