Henrique previously sent me some manhole cover pictures from Ribeirao Preto, Brazil, including a manhole cover that was overflowing with sewage. This time, Henrique’s picture is of a manhole cover overflowing with potable water. The source of Ribeirao Preto’s drinking water is the Guarani Aquifer.



Today’s manhole covers are from Ribeirao Preto. A city of 665,000 residents, Ribeirao Preto is located in the state of São Paulo, Brazil.

Thanks to Henrique for the pictures. He tells me that the picture with the water bubbling up from the manhole cover is raw sewage. 

A Yellow Sidewalk

I’ve been asking friends to send in their pictures, and today’s sidewalk comes courtesy of Henrique in Ribeirao Preto, Brazil. The trees along this sidewalk are sibipiruna, a species native to Brazil. The sibipiruna tree’s yellow flowers are in bloom from late August through November.
