Thanks for all the input on my previous post. Our plan changed slightly and we are once again in some need of adivice.
We are going in dec to S America. Peru first and then Bolivia, from where we wish to travel into Brazil. we looked at various options-death train, flights into Sao Paulo etc. We want to ideally, travel from Bolivia (either La Paz or Santa Cruz) to Manaus, spend Xmas in the Amasone, then onto Iguazo for 3 days by air from Manuas and then to Rio for new years. Problem is the expensive flights between Bolivia-manaus-falls!!Any ideas or tips or input would be greatly appreciated!!!
