Skyscrapers!!

Belem is the financial hub for the North of Brazil, we took the boat from Macapa (24 hours) to Belem and its quite spectacular rounding the corner to see skyscrapers after spending the previous day in a hammock and cruising through the rain forest!!

Belem is great, its got everything a city should have, including some fantastic restaurants and buildings.

If you get the opportunity to come here, take it! You can also fly to Cayenne return from here for US$250, which is v. cheap for the area.
