Did you know that 40 percent of the world's oxygen comes from the Amazon region/rainforest. Thats amazing and scary. I bet it smells really good down there with that much oxygen in the air. Scientists keep discovering new species of plant life and animal life all the time. I hope mankind don't go overboard and wipe all the vegetation out in our quest for discovery. I think that it would be an interesting cruise, to go there, but I hate mosquitoes and yellow flies so I better stay home. I had never heard of yellow flies until I moved to Florida. Everyone warned me about them, and they were not kidding. Those little buggers are a pain in the butt, arm, neck, wherever they land. We don't have those here in Texas thank goodness. I can't imagine what it must be like in the Amazon region. Oh well-thats another good thing about Texas.

I would love to go to the Amazon/Rain Forest! I think you would have such an alive feeling just being there. I wouldn't walk around barefooted though. I bet they have more (and bigger)snakes than you can imagine.
