Manaus is the amazing place. In my last vacations I went to Brazil, I visited Manaus city located on the Amazon heart.  The travel before to arrive to Manaus was excited because I took a plane from Bogota to Leticia, then I took a boat in Tabatinga (near to Leticia city in the territory of Brazil). I was for three days in a row on boat across the Amazon's river. However the most difficult thing was to sleep on hammock because I never had done that. During the travel I saw seven different villages, but nobody couldn't leave the boat, just wait an average 1 hour while the goods are unloaded and loaded. When the travel on boat finished I was in Manaus a large sing welcoming me. 

Before arriving at the port of Manaus, I saw like two rivers joined, that was the trip incledible phenomenon. The one was brown and the other one was black. You can the video and some photos about that amazing phenomenon. Then when I went away the boat, immediately I looked for the hotel, I stayed in Hotel do Largo, it's a three star hotel and the day cost 120 reals but there are a lot cheaper places too

Then, the first day I visited the downtown and I saw many old bildings  painted in different colors. I liked that, very attractive. Near to the downtown you can find the market, there had small traders that sell characteristic features of the Amazons. The prices are lower and you can buy many things for giving. But another kind of market are the fishing, in Manaus you can find a lot of freshwater fishes like "pirarucu" that is a big fish, the second in the world, don't forget to taste it before to come back.

Furthermore the special attraction is the Amazon theater, is an opera house. It's the location of the annual Festival Amazonas de Ópera (Amazonas Opera Festival). It's a colonial bulding from 1896. Also there is the home of the Amazonas Philharmonic Orchestra. if you are locky they may be playing. Now, inside the theater there is a beatiful environment, The theater perserves the structure and there are many art exhibitions. 

Moreover before to go out Manaus don´t forget to visit the nightclubs, the jungle and the port. bye
