What I did
Opera theater of the Amazonas
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
