Bem vindo!

Hey! We’re in Brazil! In Manaus, specifically – that’s the gateway city into the Amazon Jungle. It’s warm and very humid. So far we’ve seen the Amazon Theater, the old and new markets, and walked around town. Then we spent two days in the jungle but I don’t have access to pictures right now so I’ll talk about that later, but it was breathtaking! Tomorrow we’re going to see the Meeting of the Waters, where the Black River and muddy Amazon run side by side for a while before starting to mix. So far, we are having a great time!

I’ll post pictures of the Theater later, too, because they’re on NJD’s camera, but here are some old buildings, a painted wall hanging, port, and the old market.
