First, we contacted the WORLD’S LEADING EXPERT on the Amazonian Rainforest…brazilian celebrity biologist Richard Rasmussen! (he’s like the Steve Irwin of Brazil, the Brazilian “Crocodile Hunter”, if you will…)
We met with him and he said “you guys have to come to Manaus and see for yourselves…”
That’s exactly what we did.
We loaded up a couple of houseboats and went deep into the jungle so we could have first-hand experience with the culture, the forest, the people, and the wildlife.
