This city was amazing and there was so much to see and do. While I was there I found out that approximately 2 million people in this city, I believe it. Every street was packed with people and every corner had a merchant or two on it.

I’ve just returned from Brazil, as always want an amazing place! You may not know this but we have added some Real Deal Bags to our collection (we decided that just a hat wouldn’t do), you can view them here.
You may notice that some of the names of these bags seem rather peculiar, maybe somewhat interesting. Well I can show you exactly where they are on a map. I’ve visited each town and this time I brought back pictures of just about everyone of them so that I could show you what a wonderful little towns they are and why they deserve to have something named after them – after all they are what inspired us to get into this recycled tarp business.
On this map you can see where each city is and I even marked out my trip.
Check back next week to see pictures of Manaus!

No matter how many times we go to Brazil, I am still entranced by it. Maybe it’s the heat that plays with our minds, either way I still find Brazil to be a beautiful and truly mysterious place. The culture, the people and even the land just seem so real and maybe it’s just the fact we feel that much closer to earth here then anywhere else.
I’ve got some more pictures I would like to share.
What is truly amazing to me is just being able to walk around and see all these different things, how often are we truly mesmerized by our surroundings?

This first one we thought was pretty neat – it’s modern meets old, it’s amazing how you will see cars and motorcycles and then horses transporting people and things.
This picture on the left is a guy cutting out the different parts to make hats. This guy was amazing to watch, he moved so fast it was like watching a magician work.
The picture on the right didn’t come out like I would have hoped but it is a picture of a gas station – which just happened to be the hotel we were staying at.
On the right is one of the town markets from a village we visited.
We would love to see pictures of the different ways people are wearing their hats so if you have some, email them to us and if you would like we would be more than happy to post them here to show everyone your unique style.

Hopefully I can get some more pictures up here in a few days from our trip, there is just so much to do now that I can't get them all done!
