Bonito’s ecotourism attractive is illustrated on Bing’s front cover

Internet users who acess web search Bing can view, since yesterday (13th), one of most natural wonders of Bonito, located in the brazilian state of Mato Grosso do Sul: a panoramic photo of Abismo Anhumas (Abyss Anhumas), taken by Márcio Cabral.

In March 2013, another image of Márcio was also featured on Bing. This time, Lagoa Misteriosa (Mysterious Lagoon), located in Jardim (MS), has been viewed by thousands of users of the search engine.

Rapel and training
