Goths Up the Amazon

The title of this post may suggest that a Germanic tribe got lost sometime in the fourth century AD and ended up crossing the Atlantic to be discovered centuries later by Doug McClure etcetera. Come to think of it, that's a brilliant film scenario, and I would very much like to be paid lots of money for it.

But no, this post is about Goths in Manaos, which is a city (with a famous opera house) in Brazil's steamy interior. It's not easy being a Goth there. It's very warm.

Not easy being pale in Brazil, so kudos for trying
But if you're a Goth up the Amazon, you're a proper Goth.
'Basically, the city's climate functions like a natural selection system – filtering out those who don't take the lifestyle seriously.'
