Here's the Rio Guama at Belem, the capital of the state of Para in the north of Brazil. It's a major river closely connected to the Amazon river itself, although I'm finding it hard to work out all the ins and outs of the geography. What I have found out today is that just to the north lies the island of Marajo, one of the largest river islands in the world (about the size of Switzerland), and that the total outflow for the Amazon is greater than all the other seven largest rivers in the world put together!
We had a wonderful tour of the city conducted by the director of DD's school and his wife which ended up with a memorable last sunset of the year at a bird reserve on the banks of the river. However, I went for this shot as a reminder of my first sighting of the Amazon Delta.
