Teatro Amazonas: It is also called the Amazon Theatre, which is an opera house situated in Manaus – within the heart of the Amazon Rainforest. It was built using materials from all over the globe, like furniture from Paris, marble from Italy, and steel from England. The outer side of the building has a dome that is decorated with 36,000 ceramic tiles painted in the colours of the national flag of Brazil.
The first performance was given on January 7, 1897, with the Italian opera La Gioconda. The opera house was closed down soon after however as the rubber trade declined and Manaus lost its main source of income. There wasn?t a single performance in Teatro Amazonas for 90 years until 1990 when it reopened its doors.

Dear Ashish, Thank you for the wonderful trip you had organized for us in Austria in the month of January. I have seen Europe number of times in summer but never seen Austria in the winters. My personal favorite was a small place called AACHENSEE. Though I will recommend the nightlife of Vienna as well.
Dear Ashish, Thank you for organizing a wonderful trip to Egypt for our family. All arrangements, transfers, guides were all fine. The Oberoi Cruise was exceptionally good and I'm enclosing the photograph of my favorite place in Egypt - Alexandria. Here I recommend you should put all your passengers for minimum 2 nights. Thanks once again.
