Sorry to intrude but...Kodak has a factory in the Brazilian city of 
Manaus,  right in the middle of the Amazon jungle. The only practical 
way to reach this city is by plane or boat. In the seventies they tried  
to build a road there and the jungle ate it back - no kidding. But you 
can get C-41 there.
