ramp off of the club for free flight

Situated at an altitude of 1450 m, on top of the mountains of Serra da Moeda, it is the ramp of the Club of Free Flight; the overview is an invitation to contemplation.

On one side, with a gap of 180 m, we can view the Lake of the English, widely used by practitioners of water sports.

On the opposite side, at west of the Paraopeba Valley,  the gap reaches 580 meters, offering a simply stunning look: sometimes an intense color, dotted by the colors of the stop-gliders and delta wings, sometimes a blue-gray tone that we lost sight on the vast sea-of-mountains that comprise the region.

More About Brazil

Here's your soundtrack. Okay, maybe they're not exactly brazillian but their music is awesome and their live shows legendary.Now, Brazil covers almost half of South America and its Amazon rainforest is the world's largest jungle... which is rapidly getting cut down. The country is basically one giant botanical garden with some bangin' cities on its edges.Brazil was colonized in 1808 by the royal court of Portugal, which was fleeing Napolean's troops. They didn't stay long, and Brazil won its independence in 1822.Its biggest city, Sao Paulo, is the financial hub of South America. Brazil is the "b" in BRIC -- Brazil, Russia, India and China. These four were labeled the world's fastest developing large economies in the year 2001.Brazil is known for three things: amazingly beautiful women, carnival, and Pele -- King of Football, Athlete of the Century, football ambassador of the world and a declared national treasure.Brazillians can tell foreigners a mile away, by the way their hips move. Samba is built into the soul of brazil and carnival is when it bursts out into twenty-four hour undying explosions of sound on every street.This picture of mask diving at the Taipus reefs makes me shed hot and salty tears all over my calendar, which is set on "January" right now.Text by Steve Smith.
