“Lake Itaipu - Water for the World”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2013

It is absolutely amazing that this lake stores enough water to supply the whole world TWELVE times over every day. Yet droughts persist in nations across the planet. This lake is so huge one has to witness it to believe it.

“see it from the dam tour”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2013

No need to make a special trip since you can see it from the top of the dam.
I didn't hear or see anyone swimming in ot from the Brazil side of the dam, and didn't look anything special.

“Amazing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2013

What is truly amazing is what was destroyed in its construction. May we never forget, but at times progress overcomes nature.
