  The Amazon River is 6920 km long, rooted in the Andes in southwestern America, flowing through a massive territory and then pouring into the Atlantic Ocean.    About 25 million people live on the waterfront spread in Brazil, Peru, and Colombia. They can live in the city or in tiny tribes, but they all have one in common: if they want to cross the river on the other, they have to paddle or take a ferry. No way across the Amazon River – it divides the entire South American continent into two parts. Most of the Amazon river lengths, not the river surface are too wide, cannot build bridges, but that is the dry season. In the rainy season, the high rise is 9 m and the river extends about 48 km within a few weeks.
