Close by the city of Manaus, Brazil, the Rio Negro, colored like black coffee (middle of picture), flows into the beige-colored Amazon main stream (lower). For fifty miles downstream, the rivers retain their distinct identity, yet flow together. This is called the "Meeting of Waters" and is one of the area's main tourist attractions. Note the river bank in the far distance (top of picture).
(For a view of this feature from space, see From Space - Meeting of Waters.)
