High flood this year.

This lovely picture from our dear neighbour Paul Grol (Fazenda São João & Embiara, http://www.panoramio.com/photo/6675151) shows how much the water of the rio Negro has risen in the last few weeks. We expect that there is still more water to come. The flood is very important because it revigorates the soils by depositing organic matter which comes in suspension.
For our guests the high waters open a whole new world as for example canoeing in between the trees ...
