Planting trees

On June 17, Maureen Duncan, representing the San Diego Rotary Club, sponsored a tree planting project at Bosque Santa Lúcia.  Some 25 Rosewood trees were planted in the area across from the main entrance to the reception center.  Some of Marina's students from her visit here ten years ago participated in the event.  Obrigado!

Amazon on fire - 18 February 2018

This photo was taken from downtown Santarém, where the Tapajos and Amazon Rivers come together on their way to the Atlantic Ocean.  The meeting of the waters is spectacular, as are the sunsets this time of the year.
