Although big momma & her family were proven to be most helpful and lovely people, this was a scattered business to say the least. We were under the impression breakfast was included but upon arrival were told this wasn't true. 3 days in to our stay we woke up to a note slipped under our door stating "Breakfast is Incluse - Raquel" which we found absolutely classic. After this we continued to break many of the toilets in the hotel as they were hardly even mounted to the ground. Apart from that we were never fussy to pull up in a bed after half of the little nights had in Manaus

... cut you even though you've been waiting patiently and were actually smart enough to arrive early?" drill with a thousand other disgruntled people (who, to their credit, were actually fairly kind and polite about it). Luckily, the flight attendant yells, "Manaus! Última chamada!" And I just scream like a two year old being denied ice cream with Santa, "MANAUS!!!" And she lets me go with her.
So I get to fly. :-).

... Potter book. We were able to check our luggage in around 1am. We had to provide proof that we would not be staying permanently in Colombia - otherwise they probably wouldn't have let us through. Good thing I printed out our flight details for all our future flights. In international departure I couldn't stay awake any longer and dozed in a corner before being able to board our first flight to Panama. The flight was pretty comfortable. I got a wee bit of sleep. Tbc in next ...
... spotting grey and pink river dolphins playing and fishing in the rainforest rain wasn't so bad! By the evening it had eased enough to go Cayman spotting in the dark and unfortunately our guide did catch one, bring it back to the lodge and then prod and poke it and pretend to set it on people for photos. It seems this is common practice here, but definitely not one either of us felt comfortable with.
The next day got off to ...
