Amazon Gold Travel Ventures | Real world Facebook; research facility in jungle

Press release from: Amazon's Gold Travel Ventures

We may all have heard of the Facebook but I'm willing to bet not that much of us knows about this other Facebook in the Amazon that will probably alert more tourists where to head to next.

No, it's not anything close to a networking site but it's very much social just like its namesake.

A nightclub in the remote Amazon region was named Facebook by its 30-year old owner, Humbert Camacho. It's actually pronounced as 'Facey-Bookey' in Brazilian Portuguese.

Camacho became very successful in his first venture into the club business in Bolivia. His club, Discoteca Insomnio, reportedly welcomes 1,200 partygoers each weekend. Originally, Camacho was planning to practice law but after he opened his first business and tasted success, he doesn't look like he's going to leave too soon -- he's planning to build the Facebook nightclub in Epitaciolândia, Brazil.
"So what we wanted to do was to build a nightclub with this concept, where people could come and share things with their friends, spend a cool night, sharing pictures, experiences and have fun", he said.

Initially, they just want to have a very catchy name, something that people will surely talk about. Aside from that, the reason he chose the name is because of its concept of basically just sharing things, stories, friendships with other people.
On a more scientific note, there are plans to establish a science center in the very heart of the Amazon rainforest, disregarding the alert this could bring to untold numbers of local tribes.

This will reportedly serve as a scientific hub for scientists from universities and from the Royal Botanic Gardens. Besides, they are also counting on this to become a tourist spot.
Another advantage of this for the locals is the job opportunities this project can provide in its two years of construction in an isolated province in Brazil.
If the proposal for this USD 10 million-project is realized, this will be the very first research hub located inside the jungle.

According to reports, the site's designer will be Marks Barfield Architects, the same company credited for the famous London Eye.
