The staff here are keen to help out and by and large this was a great experience acknowledging that it is doing it all a bit rough. The fod was good. The bar caters for basic needs. the piraña fishing and eating was fantastic! The Lodge sells itself as an ecological establishment and they really seem to try. However , we saw some plastic bags get thrown in the river by staff and one of the staff stood purposefully on two frogs. The staff assured us this would not happen again, so we give them the benefit of the doubt. There is no ! I mean NO contact with the wider world as the management apparently believes this will interfere with the whole Pantanal experience... Just bad, old fashioned business in my opinion. No internet, no WiFi, no mobiles, no phones except for local calls. Should be advertised as such in their brochures. But if you want a few days with the Brazilian wildlife, this has been a pretty cool start point. Yes! We did see a jaguar!!! Very rare apparently.

... to see a caiman up on the road and also what we think were monkeys crossing the road that was a bit far ahead of us, but other than that, not much. At 1500 the group went out to go piranha fishing using very high tech fishing technology, a bamboo stick with some line attached. It didn't work. Unless you were a pro like the guides, you didn't have chance. How they think you can snag these tiny fish who nibble and shred the bait off with these massive hooks and bait chunks was beyond ...
... side of the single dirt track road that runs through the middle of the south Pantanal. Vultures feast and wait their turn in the trees above, and reflect natures food chain which keeps this place alive. Caimans, (small crocodiles), line up mouths open in the morning sun, having there teeth cleaned by small birds, as they prepare for another day in the waterholes. Sliding into the murky waters as soon as we ...
This eveing we drove around the city, saw the old city, the muesum, the oldest Cathdral as well as the largest Cathedral of the city. All very nice. We had dinner and dessert again. I'm telling you I have to be careful BC I may gain 500 pounds no lie.
Tomorrow AM we're heading to the Botanicle gardens, should ...
... ultimate answer.) It was a pleasure to see a better way of doing things. Thanks Daio! Afterwards, I sat outside. I played sax and conversed with the many people around us in the patio of the hostel. That night I would enjoy a REALLY EXPENSIVE dinner. Daio would meet us both at the restaurant once we were done and would take us to a special ...
... and once again I didn`t see one person really ***** or complain (maybe they were and I just couldn`t understand, a real possibility). I arrive in Curitiba 7 hours late and I inadvertenly just had a 21 hour bus ride, sweet. While I am at the bus terminal I buy my ticket to Foz do Iguacu for Monday meaning I will spend New Years here. Sid wants me to go to Florianapolis for New Years which I seriously consider but that is just another bus ...
