#452 Meeting of the Waters
At Manaus, the waters meet. It's visible from space.
The dark tannin-stained Rio Negro flows into the milk chocolate silt-laden Solimões/Amazon. The waters meet, but don't mix.
Extreme differences in water temperature and acidity keep the two waters distinct for many miles downstream from their junction.
Yours in enjoying this meeting,
