Nuotare in questo fiume non sembra pių l'idea del secolo, ora che ci siamo dentro. Trenta secondi fa, sulla barca, saltare in acqua sembrava la cosa pių logica da fare per sfuggire alle onnipresenti zanzare e per rinfrescarsi dai mille gradi sotto il sole. Non č che stiamo affogando, e non č neanche l'acqua il problema, sebbene sia di un color …
... tired so had an early night.
Day 1 - we did a boat ride up the nearby river. We saw lots of Cayman (I'm not sure what the plural spelling is for Cayman... Caymen?), some Capybaras, lots of birds, some monkeys. A pretty good start. The afternoon activity was horse riding, so I gave that a miss and did the boat tour again with a different group while Mel went on the horses. The second boat ride was a bit less exciting, not as many animals. Mel said the horse riding was ...
Halloween! Though it feels far from it as its roasting again today, I'm sweating my face off now writing this and iv just had a cold shower, shower time is the best time of the day. I woke up early so I could have one and ate cake for breakfast I'm totally avoiding bread and jam so cake it my only option. But about 10 minutes later I was retching and decided to have one of my anti nausea and sickness tablets which prompted me to throw up and have to ...
... via a phone card that ran out just in time for them to determine the next bus to Sao Paolo, in forty minutes, was their best bet for moving ahead. So off they went after some smiley goodbyes. First good friends of the trip, officially made. I hope our paths cross again.
My next step for adventure: the Curitiba mall. For twelve hours. Aaaaaawe yea. Start rolling the cameras. This is gonna get goofy.
Let me make things short by saying I have mastered the ...
... a light evening meal I went to pick up my bags at the Youth Hostel and headed for the bus station. Although you hear all these scare stories of people getting robbed on overnight bus trips in South America I was quite excited about this leg of my journey and I even pushed the boat out and had bought a "Leito" ticket which meant the seat reclined all the way back. So at 22.00 hrs the bus left Curitiba in the direction of Foz de ...

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.
