Brazil - Manaus

34 °C

We disembarked our river boat, our home for the last four days, and with all our belongings accounted for walked into Manaus. We arrived at our accommodation with our faces matching the colour of tomatoes. It was hot, especially trekking across a concrete jungle in the heat of the day!! We cooled off and went for a wander in the more pleasant temperature of the evening. Manuas is a big city, home 1.6 million people. Pretty incredible, considering the entire city has been erected in the middle of the jungle. Ford even produces cars there!

Most areas felt fairly sketchy, however the central square of Praça São Sebastião was a nice area to visit after the sun was down. We also enjoyed a trip to the Municipal Park of Mindú, a little wildlife/nature park in the city, with lots of leafy trees to cool off under!

As Brazil is so big and our time is running low, we opted to take a flight from Manaus to Rio de Janeiro, 4 hours of flying, cutting out several days on buses.
