  Title: Lower Rio Parana Panaramic, Argentina, South America
  Description:
  This southeast looking view shows the lower Parana River (32.0S, 59.5W) of 
  central Argentina with floodwaters obscuring most of the valley bottom 
  detail.  The rain swollen lower 300 km of the river, that displaced some 
  200,000 people, even appears as an arm of the ocean.  Uruguay is visible at 
  top left and cities appear as small white patches.  Buenos Aires, South 
  America's largest city, can be seen on the south shore of Rio de la Plata.
