Manaus, the city in the heart of the Amazon.
Ever wondered what it would be like to get lost in the Amazon? Three years ago I got the chance to visit Manaus, Brasil and absolutely loved it. Very different than Rio, Sao Paulo, Curitiba or any other cities in Brasil, Manaus has a tropical climate all year around and is located in the heart of the Amazon River.
There is so much to see in Manaus and its surroundings. It is one of those port cities that I would definitely go back to.
