Breakfast in Santarem!

View from the breakfast terrace at my hostel in Santarem, Brazil.

A vulture drying his wings and the boats arriving and leaving on the Amazon river. Nothing beats a tropical breakfast with fresh “jugo de Maracuja” (passion fruit) and a panorama like that..

O rio mar!

  The Amazon river close to Santarem.

A few weeks ago I presented a photo from the Iguazu falls. Iguazu means great waters, and that place is for sure an impressive sight!

This is another place worthy of superlatives. At times when you travel by boat on the the Amazon it appears to be more like an ocean. In fact there are stretches of the river that are more than 40 kilometers wide..!!
