Peter... do I understand good? Here 2 rivers flow close to one another, they don't? Interesting phenomenon. Greetings, Maryla

Maryla yes the rivers actually meet and their different colors are kept separated for about 25 km's before they mix totally in a new color :) It's something about turbulence in the flowing - or rather lack of. Greetings back, Peter
