The Amazon river starts hi up in the perusian alps and works it’s way down into Brazil where it travels 6500 km to exit in the Atlantic Ocean. It is the largest water and forest basin in the world covering an area of 7,000,000 sq km and producing an estimated 80% - 90% of the worlds oxygen. There was a time many million years ago that the river flowed west and exited on the perusian side if South America, than when the alps formed it started flowing east. This river is the life force of all living things in the region and the world.  #amazonrbr www.amazonrainforestbrazil.com #hostelforus www.hostelforus.com
