THE DAILY VIEW: A Rain of Color
A Rain of Color -- photo by Lou Gold
I've often commented on and displayed the extraordinary use of color in Rio Branco. It is said that "color expresses the Acreano will toward happiness." Now, the national oil company Petrobras seems to be using color to express the late-in-the-dry-season desire for rain. Or, perhaps the colors express the happiness that will be felt when the rains finally return. Or, more likely, it's to celebrate Children's Day in Brazil. Either way, it surely reaches for happiness.
