Meeting of the Two Rivers in Brazil

Meeting of the Two Rivers in Brazil

The "Meeting of the Waters" is the point at which the Rio Negro meets the Rio Solimões to form the Amazon River proper in the Brazilian state of Amazonas. Due to differences in temperature, speed and density, the two rivers' differently colored waters don't mix immediately, but flow side by side for several miles.
