The Amazon River

factual friday

The Amazon river is the largest river in the world by volume and at almost 4,000 miles, the second longest. It passes through 7 countries on its way to the sea, nearly cutting the continent of South America in half.

With that in mind, it may surprise you that over the course of its length there is not a single bridge over it!! Literally not one!! If you want to get from one side to the other, you’re going to need a boat.
