Belem

Belem lies in the mouth of the Amazon in Brazil - with thousands of square kilometres of rainforest wilderness on its doorstep. I love the city - particularly its riotous and rich and varied music scene. And I love the wilderness even more - especially Marajo - the largest river island in the world - as big as Denmark. Vast white-pepper sand beaches backed by towering forest meet a fresh water ocean here; filled with sharks and dolphins and with a seemingly infinite horizon. The wildlife is incredible. The people warm-hearted - even by Brazilian standards, and there isn't a tourist in sight.

Here's a little piece I did on the eclectic Belem music scene for the French music magazine - Mondomix. Words and pictures are mine. I'll put some more shots up on my Flickr site soon. Belem is spectacular.....
