Where I stayed
Hotel 10 Julho

Flag of Brazil  , Estado do Amazonas,
Thursday, November 19, 2009

 After 12 h waiting in Sao Paulo airport we finally got the 3 h flight to Manaus. We stayed in a very basic hotel. We visited Teatro amazonas (barroque theater from the last century). We were suprised how the city has different programs for the people like free internet and free music in the teather.
One night there was a classical concert in the teather with the ĻAmazon phylarmonic orchestraĻ, it was nice the see the teather live.
This city was once of the most rich in the last century due to rubber and gum industry.  But the city was in a deep crisis after the development of new materials like plastic.
Another place we find interesting was the pier, this is the most important in the Amazon. Ships from here go to the Atlantic 1-2 weeks or to Colombia and Peru 5 days.
 
 We enjoyed the different fruit juices which are offered in the streets (Goiaba, Mango, Guarana, etc etc) it was really great!
