At the first sight you think that this is the view from the command cabin of a B-29 bomber. But this is only the passengers view when going down the Serra do Mar towards the Henry Borden Hydroelectric Power Plant using its private funicular. Note at the left the pipes that bring water from the highlands, about 800 m above sea level, to the power plant, at sea level. The ride of your life! This copy, shot in December 2002, is courtesy of Gilmar Issa Gallo, from São Paulo SP.
