As mentioned earlier this week, the team is pushing hard and fast towards the Brazilian city of Manaus. In fact, the guys are hoping to reach this waymark over the coming weekend – which will mean that they are on course to finish well ahead of schedule! More on that when we hear it…
At Manaus, the ‘meeting of waters’ takes place. This is where the dark coloured Rio Negro joins with the Rio Solimões – the upper Amazon – to become the main body of the River Amazon. It occurs due to the varying speeds, temperatures and water densities of the two rivers.
The crew will witness first hand this natural phenomenon as they pass by the city. We are hoping that they will also be able to send through a couple more photos once they reach this stage… Fingers crossed!
In the meantime, keep donating!
