South America

Barley Hugg, Location Historian

Amelia Earhart now entered the South American part of her journey. This part would also see her cross the Equator. She made 4 stops in South America: Caripito, Paramaribo, Fortaleza, and Natal. The last two cities are in Brazil, while the first is in Venezuela, and the second was in Dutch Guiana. Dutch Guiana is now known as Suriname. Paramaribo is the capital of Suriname and most of the country’s population lives there. It is well known for its diverse population. Just like Paramaribo, all three other South American cities sit on the the coast. Natal, in Brazil, is called the City of the Sun. Natal is not a big city, but is becoming a major tourist area and is said to be the safest capital city in Brazil. Fortaleza, also in Brazil, mimics its neighbor with safety and tourism. Fortaleza is a major beach city. Caripito is in Venezuela. There is a lot of oil activity in this city.
