The climate can scarcely be more monotonous hot, humid and daily rains with more rain during the rainy season, January to June. The temperature difference from hot to cool months is only about three degrees.
Why visit the Amazon? Some like the climate as it is. Bird watchers are delighted. There are birds that moan, others screech, some break into fits of laughter (humor unknown). Of course there is another reason: how many people can tell about their trip on a two-decker boat and the opulent opera house in Manaus with its forty thousand blue, green, and gold ceramic tiles imported from Alsace? In the Amazon forest, trees reach three-hundred-foot heights. In an area about four square miles there can be as many as seven hundred fifty different kinds of trees, four hundred kinds of birds and one hundred twenty-five species of mammals.
The soil, however, is not rich. Less than 10 percent is good for agriculture and even tree farming has yet to prove profitable.
