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

... home early. I'm pleased to say that by the time a flight was suggested for me to come home, I started to feel better but I couldn't get my original flight back from Manaus so had to settle for one on the 4th June. My jungle experience finished on the 28th May which left me 6 days to explore the city.
A lot of people said that I would have nothing to do. However I had a really enjoyable time here.

There is quite a clear dividing line between the two waters - the guide explained that due to the different flowing speeds of the two rivers (caused by the deposits they carry) they only converge about 16 Kilometers after meeting each other. Quite amazing.
Another great tour - thoroughly enjoyed!!!
... would attack us in the night. We retired to our hammocks about 9pm and helped by the cachaca and earplugs (so couldn't hear the mozzies buzzing around my net) drifted off to a nice sleep. We woke at dawn to the sound of howler monkeys really nearby. Chris fared worse off than me in the night as he went shirtless in his hammock and shifted in his sleep so the net was on him and gave the mozzies a feast and he woke up with even more bites. After a nice ...
Manaus is rocking, it's even busier than the England game. There are American’s everywhere, the main square is full of drunk Americans, singing USA, USA, a few Portugal fans try to shout back but they were drowned out. We decided to do something cultural in the morning so we visited the Rio Negro Palace which is opposite the hostel. We found out that Manaus was the most prosperous place ...
... flight to rio. Instead we had a driving tour around the city of Manaus. We were all suprised to see what a poor city it was and that this is where quite a few of the football teams will be staying and training (in great heat and humidity) for the World Cup. We also were taught about a famous mosaic pattern which can be seen all over cities in brazil- the black and white waves: the meeting of ...
