Brazil Meeting of Waters

Amazing city in the Amazon rainforest. Close to the city the two rivers Rio Negro and Rio Soleimos meet and merge to the Amazon River. For a distance of nearly 6-8 km they run side by side without mixing. This is caused by the two different characters of the rivers. The water of the Rio Negro ist almost black and clear and has a higher temperature than the milky, creamy brown water of the Rio Soleimos,
Manaus itself is a 2 million city in the heart of the Amazon and only accessable primarily by boat or plane. In the beginning of the 20th century it was called the "Paris of theTropics" and famous for the Opera-House "Teatro Amazonas", which was built in the late 19th century with the money of the rubber boom.
