“Meeting Of The Waters”

The photo above shows where the Amazon River meets the Rio Negro in Brazil.

Not only do the two rivers bounce off each other when initially introduced, they keep up their mutual cold-shoulder routine for six whole miles. There is, of course, a perfectly good scientific reason for this. The Negro is colder, heavier and slower-moving than its neighbor – and it takes this surprising distance for the swirling currents to merge the flows fully.

The Meeting Of The Waters is the beginning of what is arguably the longest and certainly the greatest river in the world. – the Amazon.

In coming posts, I will talk more about where to visit in South America. I’m also working on posts that will share more about Americans living in Ecuador and how they adjust to living in this country and the many interesting attractions in Ecuador. There are lots of differences in the cost of living all over South America and many countries with low cost of living such as Ecuador! So please stay tuned!
