Day Five - Belem Old Town

An old tumbledown building, behind the fort, in the old part of town. The area was pretty rough, but people were still friendly. Many people stopped us in the street to say 'take care of your bag', or 'keep the camera in your bag', but it felt suprisingly safe.

I was expecting a good sunset from the fort, with the sun slipping down ovet the Amazon, but it was a bit dull - so this is looking back the other way, from the Amazon at the town. Maybe this was a grand office - now it houses people. Squatters maybe? Click on the image to open it larger, and check out the washing drying in one of the windows!
