River paths
The regional boat goes down the left bank of the Solimões river with white waters, it will soon find the paraná that will take it to the Negro river. The intense fluvial communication has the city of Manaus as the center of arrival and departure, where the riverside trade is concentrated to sell the products that he brings from the countryside, such as manioc flour, cassava, peach palm, açaí, chestnut, etc. These sales allow the realization of a greater desire, a goal of improving an extremely simple life. For example, the riverside dweller’s unpretentious dream is to buy a rabeta motor, a flour oven, a fishing net… instruments that make his day-to-day life easier and ensure his family’s food security.
