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

... while enjoying the fan there. We had planned to try the hotel’s restaurant, but most restaurants seem to close really early and so we had to walk a bit further to find dinner.
The next day, the 22 of September, started out a lot better as we managed to both make it to breakfast and to visit both the park and the fort we had planned to do the day before. The park was very nice and full of birds, iguanas and butterflies, while the fort was small but to ...
So after the carnage and mayhem of Carnival, we popped a few anti-malarial pills and jumped on a flight to Manaus. Manaus is in the North of Brazil and is a city with a population of about 2 million people and sits pretty much slap bang in the middle of the Rainforest. It was a middle of the day flight so we arrived at our Hostel mid afternoon. We knew we needed to get cash etc but everywhere was still closed and the streets were dead as the 17th was the last day ...
... to discover its interesting flora and fauna including many medicinal plants. We saw the white sap from the rubber tree, giving us an appreciation of the scale of workforce that must have been involved during the rubber boom. Luiz also coaxed a tarantula out of its hole, allowing us to get up close to it.
For our second night, we had the choice of spending the night in a jungle camp or at the home of Luiz and his ...
Today, we were going to the amazon!! We have been waiting for this moment for so long! So the night before we packed a bag and headed to bed early as we had to get up at 6 to shower and get ready... 6 turned into 7:30 wake up and involved a quick shower, apply the old (and revolting) bushmans, and then rushed downstairs to wait for our ride. And we waited. And waited. And waited. After an hour we decided that our ride wasn't coming so we legged it to their office (around ...
... being in the amazon, there has been multiple breakdowns by the motors of the boats.. And now we are cruising down the amazon in pitch black darkness, the lightning above lighting our way every minute or so.. I don't think the guides believe in torches! We then hit a bump, which the guide said was a Camon! Halfway down the river it started to pour again, which means we had to start bailing water out of the boat, then we had to pull into a ...
