Since I have arrived in Brazil people have been very friendly. Manaus does not have a big city feel even though it has 2 million people because it still feels like you are right outside the Amazon. There are no huge buildings to be seen, and the streets are narrow and hilly. Traffic is absolutely ridiculous. On the flight in, I could see the Amazon River, and since it was night time I would see a light from a small boat every mile or so along the water.
I am now posting this from my phone because the small hotel I am in doesn’t even have a single computer. Believe it or not, this is one of the nicer hotels in town because it actually has internet and decent water. Tomorrow will be my tour of Manaus and my first experience with the Amazon! I’m sorry but until I have access to a computer in a couple of days I will be unable to post pictures on here for you all to see. Don’t worry though, I’m still taking them to show you! No assignment for today because it is the weekend and you probably won’t read this until Monday! God Bless!
