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

We saw THE MEETING OF THE WATERS and then turned around to eat lunch at a floating buffet. One of the things the travel doctor told us not to do was eat ...
... was slightly delayed (hmmm, could the pilots also have been watching??). Even better, Brazil prevailed and will move on. We arrived in Brasilia for the second highlight of the day - Brian had arrived and was waiting for us at the hotel. We all celebrated with a nice dinner out. It was great catching him up on our adventures (oh yeah Mom I forgot about your blog). Tomorrow morning we tour Brasilia and the watch 2 games in the afternoon. Another great ...
we finally found a supermarket!! massive highlight of the day seeing as though we have been looking for one since we arrived here. so frustrating not being able to utilize our beautiful kitchen. after a lovely sleep in our comfie beds it was off the the supermarket. thanks to Google we knew it would be a big one not one of the small ones we'd walked past the other day. we took a taxias we had no idea where it was. there are so many one way streets ...
... sleep. We were greeted by Fabiola (the wife of the couple who own and run Tariri Lodge) and with her broken English she warmly welcomed us to our first amazon experience. We were overwhelmed by the monkeys that were climbing around her and were assured that they were pets. We met Chica (the mother) and her baby and were told about Chico (the dad) who was roaming around somewhere. Chico only likes the ladies and might be a bit aggressive so we really ...
