Knowing Belém, Metropolis of the AMAZON| BRAZIL

Hello!

Well, here I will show you a little of my city: Belém.

foundation: 01/12/1616
Population: 1.424.124 hab
Population of the metropolitan area:2.078.405 hab
HDI:0,806

Belém, well known as Mango's tree city, is the largest metropolitan area in the Amazon rain forest. Its metropolitan area has more than 2 million habitants. It rains almost everyday here, and from january to june, it rains the entire day

I think you don't have idea about how a city in the midle of the Amazon is, but I'll show you Belém that is a normal big city, surrounded by jungle

PS: Algumas fotos tirei do orkut, portanto não sei os verdadeiros dono. Se o dono aparecer é só dizer aqui quais são as suas fotos que eu coloco créditos :
Let's start with this video with audio in english

Belem was a surprise even for me! And I'm Brazilian!!!

Before I enter at SSC, I thought that Belem was a small, with no tall buildings and poor city.

But I don't think that anymore!

Yes! But if you look a map, it just a small piece of the forest, compared with the entire Amazon. Try to search for Belém on Google Earth.

The greatest problems with deforestation of the Amazon are related with soy planting and with use of wood, not with expansion of the cities

thank your for asking
