Teresina, the Capital of Brazilian Middle-North

Teresina is the Capital City of Piauí State, in the Brazilian Northeast, located in the transition of the semi-arid and the Amazonian regions. Founded in 1852 in the confluence of Poty and Parnaíba Rivers, it was the first planned Brazilian Capital City, replacing Oeiras. It has 800,000 inhabitants, being the seat of a Metropolitan Area with 1,100,000 people. My beloved hometown.
These photos were chosen from www.teresinapanoramica.com, my site with more than 400 images like these. So, making it clear, these photos are mine, not googled.

Meu caro, as fotos são minhas. O site é meu. Não garimpei nada, chefe. Me agradaria mais um comentário, crítica, elogio, do que um post sem propósito destes. Era só ler minha assinatura.

For those who don't speak Portuguese: these images are all mine, taken from a site of mine. I hope this is clear.

Beleza de fotos! Teresina me parece cada vez mais acolhedora e bonita. Legal que as margens dos rios estejam sendo valorizadas. Parabéns!
