291: Mirror lake reflection
Pernambuco is a state in northeastern Brazil and is slightly larger than Portugal. As far as the population is concerned, the Brazilian state does not do much for Portugal. Pernambuco has a rich history and enormous cultural wealth. The Dutch ruled their colony from Pernambuco for a quarter of a century, after which the Portuguese settlers ruled Pernambuco again. The state also has a natural wealth, with savannahs, and some remains of the vast Atlantic jungle forest. When I was on my way to the neighboring state of Paraíba, we drove along this large lake. The still water seemed like a natural mirror, which showed a heavily cloudy sky.
