Tourist boats dock on what effectively is the Silva familys front doorstep, and the family snaps into action, peeling the reluctant sloths from the legs of the plastic patio table, rousing the retiring snake from its hiding spot in the corner and offering up the snapping, 2-foot-long caiman to the cameras.

In this May 21, 2014 photo, boys rest after playing in the ruins of Paricatuba, near Manaus, Brazil. Darker things, too, are said to take place inside these crumbling walls. Theres the room fitted out with rusting, vine-engulfed bars that once kept prisoners in check. Theres a former bathroom with spooky red streaks along one of the walls and a straw broom leaning in the corner, left there, one of the kids suggested, by a witch. Theres the spot where, legend has it, lepers bodies were burned. (AP Photo/Felipe Dana)
