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 woke early on the 23rd and endured a 3 hour car journey and an hour boat journey to reach a remote lodge in the heart of the Amazon. I was pleasently suprised and it gave me hope that this wouldn't be horrendous. The lodge looked clean, no bugs as of yet and the beds looked comfy. The first day we got in the boat with our guide and went piranha fishing. I caught 4 and Mike only caught 1. This was not as scary as I imagined as they ...
... a couple of emails and post a picture on Facebook. Our new friends wanted to find a bank and we found ourselves in the middle of a local market - I felt a bit uncomfortable if I tell the truth - so many people, just sitting at their stands and all selling more or less the same stuff.
We found the bank finally after taking our lives in our hands to cross the roads, our friend got her money and then we decided we woud like to find the real market where they sell souvenirs and ...

Rio Negro Palace. 1546 Av. 7 de Setembro , +55 92 3232-4450. Call for information on attractions. The Rio Negro Palace was built by German farmers in the "golden age". Nowadays it's a cultural center and theater. It's one of the city's postcards. Prices vary.
Ponta Negra Beach it's a nice spot,and popular river beach. It has several bars and restaurants and is some distance west of the city.
Praia da Lua Beach very clean ...
... help him avoid hitting his car. I have no idea how he'd get out of this car spot, honestly ridiculous.
We we were taken upstairs to our apartment, and to be honest with our track record at Porto Alegre we weren't expecting much. How. Wrong. We. Were! Amazing studio apartment with a projector as a TV-perfect to watch the Brazil v Cameroon game. Also cool as we'd missed the last Australia game v Spain thanks to our flight. So it was nice to have ...
... left us both rather disappointed - luckily it only lasted 45 minutes as we were ready to just walk out!! The next day we went off on our boat trip to see the meeting of the waters...first stop was an awful visit to an 'Indian tribe' who did a traditional dance (after quickly changing out of their Nike shorts) - a very authentic experience!! We were then rushed on to the boat to go and see the pink river dolphins. They are actually more grey but ...
