We went to the port to board a boat which took us for eight hours of sightseeing on the Amazon River. The port itself isn’t that interesting. It is in a run down section of the city. From our cruise boat, we had a close...More

We saw this on an excursion from our cruise ship. It was so interesting to see the floating petrol stations and shops which are built like that to cope with the regular flooding of the Rio Negro.

Interesting site and worth visiting to see the floating houses on the River Negro. Some even have satellite dishes. The small enclave includes a bar. Some boats have air conditioning (rare) and outhouses. Interesting site.
