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 ...
... sunbathing in the dark (not Guna get much of a tan tho). Then extra snouts and eyes poking out of the water. Luckily these crocs only eat twice a year, which was not tonight. Many capybaras were amongst them, they kinda look like a mix between an otter and a hippo coz they're big and hairy. Tonight we sleep in hammocks in one big together, this shall be interesting to see if I end up on the floor ...
... with enough time to give everyone standing within fifty meters of the dock a high five and ask a list of nine personal questions, to prove their bohomian island bond. Within a few minutes, we were directed which of the three docked ferries would be jetisoning us from shore to shore. We hopped aboard and set to sea.
We set to sea, but the sea was all but set. I found myself in a mode I learned well from my adventures aboard a catamaran in the British Virgin Islands - ...
Diwrnod 10 - Dydd Sul 31/08/08 Milltiroedd Tir a Deithwyd ~ Train Miles Travelled (Curitiba i Morentes) : 90 I managed to get hold of a cheap alarm clock last night and it worked, and at 7.45 am I was at the Train Station. Promptly at 8.15 am the big old diesel train left for Morrentes, located not from the Brazilian coast, approximately 70 Km to the east of Curitiba. It was going to be a slow ride as the train journey was 3 hours ...

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.
