The Amazon River
Rio Amazonas; of South America is the largest river in the world with a total river flow greater than the next ten largest rivers combined.
The Amazon, which has the largest drainage basin in the world, accounts for approximately one-fifth of the world's total river flow.

In its upper stretches the Amazon river is called Apurímac (in Peru) and Solimões (in Brazil).
During the wet season, parts of the Amazon exceed 190 kilometers (120 mi) in width. Because of its vast dimensions, it is sometimes called The River Sea.
At no point is the Amazon crossed by bridges !! Reason being, the bulk of the river flows through tropical rainforest, where there are few roads and even fewer cities, so there is no need for crossings.

The Amazon Rainforest

Also known as Amazonia or Amazon jungle, is a moist broadleaf forest that covers most of the Amazon Basin of South America.
This basin encompasses seven million square kilometers (1.7 billion acres), of which five and a half million square kilometers (1.4 billion acres) are covered by the rainforest.

This region includes territory belonging to nine nations. The majority of the forest is contained within Brazil, with 60% of the rainforest, followed by Peru with 13%, and with minor amounts in Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana.
The Amazon represents over half of the planet's remaining rainforests !! - and it comprises the largest and most species-rich tract of tropical rainforest in the world.
