Photographer's Note

The municipality of Presidente Figueiredo is the land of waterfalls in the state of Amazonas and has popped up for ecological tourism due to its more than one hundred catalogued waterfalls, as the Araras Waterfall, shown in the picture, in the middle of the forest.

Unlike what is thought, the name of the municipality is a tribute to João Figueiredo, president of the province of Amazonas at the time of the Empire. The intention was to make a tribute to the ex-president of the Republic, João Baptista de Oliveira Figueiredo, but this one, perhaps for knowing of his low popularity, didn't accept it. After all, one of his most famous phrases was: "Please, forget me"!
