 blockquote, div.yahoo_quoted { margin-left: 0 !important; border-left:1px #715FFA solid !important; padding-left:1ex !important; background-color:white !important; } Ah, the Amazon: it's a jungle down there! 
It takes about half the ~10-hr flight DFW-GRU to traverse it!
"Embrace of the Serpent" is a great movie, where quite a few languages are spoken: probably several indigenous amazonic languages (the great Brazilian anthropologist Darcy Ribeiro mentions there were over 1,000 language spoken there before the Europeans "discovered" the Americas), German, English, Spanish, Portuguese...

Another great movie: IXCANUL, in Mayan, from Guatemala

Hi Rick!  Loved your suggestion, thanks!  :*

Yesterday night, I asked some tips, informations and pratical suggestions in some groups, but had no many feedbacks yet.  I was searching for some apps and  - wow! -  most of them want complete access to my account, password included.  I bet there is some hidden clausule saying I am also donating my soul and all my body organs!  Ugh, ugh, ugh!  :P

One of my friends suggested I should code and create it, and sent me one of his experiences using tweepy.

I am still talking with him, but unfortunately my "coding style"  (cof, cof!)  is so very disastrous, so horrendous that almost became a legend among some Python groups.  When I try to code apparently I can summon Godzilla, Cthulhu, all the Four Horsemen of Apocalypse, but I can't make anything good...  There is a joke on another list which says the last time I tried to code, Trump won the elections, meh!  :(( 

Some years ago, when I told to a friend I was reading the Python Cookbook, he said:  -  "Hey, wasn't you a veggie?  Snakes taste good?  Which recipe you will cook?"  Uff, some North Americans still think we eat snakes and monkeys on South America and that Amazon Forest is nearby, on my backyard maybe...  :((
