Amazon River, Brazil
The Amazon River and its basin are the source of nearly one fifth of the world's fresh water supply. Within that basin and the surrounding rainforest lives the planet's most diverse array of birds and freshwater fish.
Over 10 million people live along the Amazon River's edge in major cities, small towns, tiny villages and in the thousands of independent shacks and stilt houses that cover the winding shoreline.
On this page I've posted a series of photos that don't really belong to any one city or stop along the river, and along my Amazon River journey, more will be added.
