The attached image was taken early yesterday morning. Dark clouds threatened to dump more rain on Santarém and the region, but by mid-morning the clouds had veered off to another area and we were treated to a day of sunshine. By midnight, it was raining again and it hasn't stopped. Out there where you see the Tapajós and Amazon Rivers covered with a blanket of black clouds, there's only a white haze. And the rain continues to fall.
