Destination: Manaus, Brazil

Here is a satelite view of where I'm headed! Manaus is the capital of the state Amazonas and is just north of the point where the Rio Negro and the Rio Solimoes meet to form the Amazon. You can see these two main tribuitaries joining below. Even from outer space the color difference is quite distinct!

Here is the capital city:

  1. Beautiful, Caitlin! I look forward to further posts!

  2. We are so happy for you. We know that God will bless you and we will be praying for you. I was so excited when you told us that you would be working on the Luzeiro. I remember when I was a girl hearing about the couple that ran it and helped so many people. I can't remember their name, but would recognize it.
    We love you,
    Pam & Fred Bruce
