Photo Essay: Crossing the Amazon by Air

Word.


A work of art.


Yes, the current local time was indeed 5:34AM.


Dawn in Dade County.


Fatigue setting in.


Uma garotinha...awwwwww.


Ole Man River.


The Mis'sippi ain't got nuthin on this.


Not exactly ATL.


The river runs through it (the dark water on the left is from a separate tributary that merges with the Amazon at Manaus).


Oooooooooooooooooooo!


Aaaaaaaaaahhhhhh!

Ooohhhhhhhhhhhh.


Thunderous dusk over the capital (yes, it took that long to get there).


Arriving at BSB.


Can't get any more Brazilian than that.

Very cool. It seems you flew over the "encontro das águas" which is actually where the Amazon technically begins. The dark water is the Rio Negro and the light water is the Rio Solimões; where they join and swirl together is the start of the Rio Amazonas.

Felicia: I still need to check that link.

Drea: Many thanks!

Loca: I knew one was the Rio Negro, but I had no idea about the other. Now I know!!! :-)
