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.

... apparently nobody knows how to use the buses here). We've also been to a few family parties, where barbequed meat is abundant (as are caiprinhas and beer) and where we once happened across a very drunk, *******, drooling man lying on the sofa watching the telly. He turned out to be a political candidate for the local elections! Despite his looking very smart and sincere on the posters and leaflets that are plastered across town, I can't help but get a faint whiff of ...
... other wildlife. Our horse ride through the beautiful Pantanal was absolute bliss – and an incredible way to really appreciate the areas beauty and bounty.
The gang also went Piranha fishing – with Loz catching her fair share for dinner that night! I am surprised Loz came back with her legs in tack...as they went waste deep in the water where snake fish and caimens lived...eew! These guys can bite!
What an incredible 2 days in ...

Persevere! Continue on! I decided to march ahead to make sure the ferry didnīt take off without us.
We made it to the ferry with plenty of time and even Romulo came strolling along at ...
... in Portuguese. It still amazes when I can communicate in this other language. Back to Curitiba - True to form, the city seems to run like a well-oiled machine. Every sidewalk was tiled in these interesting designs and around every corner the tile patterns would suddenly change. After a few days I was trained to wonder and anticipate what new tile design the next turn would bring. Ahhhh ... the tiles!!! If you look at the recycling ...
... Christmas decorations and huge blow-up santas. And all the usual shops you find in any city but these are by now totally boring. We headed back to the bus station only to get caught in a hailstorm, dropping 1cm bullets on our heads. This was followed by a half hour drenching rain. Come 9pm we boarded the bus for Foz, pushed our seats back and settled in for 12 ...
