Arriving in Manaus after 3 weeks of mayhem in paradise (Rio De Janeiro), we immediately started to regret our 3 week stay we had booked in this hot, Barron city. After a walk up the road to the supermarket in 30+ degree heat & crazy humidity, we started discussing the option of flying to Mexico or Salvador for a week. Due to all our limited …
Ola from Manaus -- capital of Amazonia -- and home to the slowest, most carefree creatures on the planet earth -- the Sloth!
But first, our trip had taken off very smoothly as all our flights were on-time and hassle-free -- Bernie even received his checked backpack after they ripped it apart to search for the concealed tranquilizer darts …
... by lots of low-rent style shops. But the first highlight of the day was watching the Brazil/Chile game in the fan park outside the Opera House. We got there 90 minutes before the game to get a chair - which we moved under the shade of the tree. By game time, the latecomers were standing in the brutal sun. But that didn't dampen their enthusiasm. We got right in the spirit (not one, but two beers before noon - we recognized the need to keep ...
... 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!

So it was nice to have ...

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
