Tapajós Lookout Meeting of the Waters, Santaré, State of Para, Brazil
Today’s port of call is Santarem, which is located midway between Belem and Manaus. The city is situated at the joining of the Tapajós and Amazon Rivers.
The notes from the Location Team state this meeting as follows: Santarem is where the murky, brownish-yellow waters of the Amazon River meet the aquamarine waters of the Tapajós River.
For miles beyond the merging of the rivers, the different colored waters don’t mix and there’s a very visible dividing between them.”
