THURSDAY, MARCH 15, 2007. SAO LUIS, BRAZIL. Jeff and I arrived in Sao Luis last night. It's an old colonial port city with French and Portuguese influence. It's also a UNESCO World Heritage site with colorfully restored colonial buildings, many decorated with tiles similar to those found in Lisbon, Portugal.
After Sao Luis, we will continue northwest to Belem, where the Amazon river enters the Atlantic ocean. From Belem, we plan to catch a slow boat (they are all slow) up the Amazon river to Santorem.
