The Amazon River is South America’s essential life source, a glittering superhighway that cuts through the continent. It is the central artery in a vast network of tributaries that sustains some 30 million people across eight countries, moving supplies, people and industry deep into forested regions often untouched by road.

PS: Vale a pena ler os comentários na matéria do NYT, também conhecido por “The Old Gray Lady”. O jornal tem aparecido muito por aqui, mas para quem gosta de jornalismo e fotografia é impossível ficar sem ver a velha senhora.
