So far we were treated with a night visit of the old city in an open air bus (drinks & canape...)
Dark (black on black) crossing of the Rio Negro by night on the longest bridge in the word over a river.
Visit of a biologocal institute nursing some endangered spiecies (Sloths: the lazy ones: 2 claws on top, 3 below; dolphins, monkeys...)
Diner dance party at the reception hall of Rio Negro Palace...
A boat trip to see the place where the waters from Amazon and Rio Negro merge.
In fact the black warm waters of Rio Negro from Amazon do not mix for a while with the brown water of the Amazon coming from the Andes with about 5 degrees less, and different PH. Bugs animals and fish prefer the amazon, remeber this before taking a dive. Plus zero visibility, whilst Rio Negro offers about one meter visibility
