    Elevador Lacerda, Salvador, Bahia, Brazil
    Lacerda Elevator - Salvador‘ s main visual mark, the elevator had its first
    tower built in 1873 and started to function with two cabins for passenger
    transportation, which worked with a hydraulic system. At first, it was called
    Elevador da Conceição, since it was located near Igreja de Nossa Senhora da
    Conceição da Praia, but, in 1930, it got the name of its constructor,
    engineer Antônio de Lacerda, and it was completely remodeled and
    amplified, in a project that was very daring for the time. Currently with four
    electric lifts, Elevador Lacerda i the main access to the lower and Higher
    cities, and from its high part, it is possible to have a panoramic view of the
    city.

    I will go with the elevator (elavador panoramico) at the cataratas do Parque nacional do Iguaçu. And the numbers represent the meters of high.

    Default 200T Award

    I didn´t think I´d be awarding the big money first, but...

    No one has gotten the first question (yet), although there were some excellent guesses.

    Gabi earned the 200T - These numbers represent the number of meters above sea level.
