Dan is back from his 2-week stay in Manaus - a city in the middle of the Amazon rainforest in Brazil. He talks about the geography of Brazil and the Amazon, as well as reflect on the experiences he had in the first couple of days staying with different peoples within the Amazon.

*In Shower Thoughts we overthink those random questions and life-changing thoughts we frequently have in the shower and maybe come to a conclusion, all in a casual conversation.

  • The geography of Brazil and the Amazon - it's unimaginably big
  • The Amazon river system should be classified as an official wonder of the world
  • The perception of exercise and its relation to health by doctors in Manaus
  • Being the first English person most people in Manaus have met
  • Why most people in Manaus have never left the city
  • Does man seek a simple life?
