So we got to Tabatinga, not as dangerous as everyone makes it out to be. I mean, yea it was dodgy and we almost got run over a few times, but all in all it was OK. The hotel was nice, I should have hoped so for the price we paid for it (We felt like going quality for one night as we knew we`d be spending a lot of time there and not venuring out too much. Turns out we ventured out to the airport far too early the next day, getting the time zones mixed up due to our phones being ...
... where the battery was flat again; A recharge and off to Reconquista without further hassles but then flat again next day. Auto sparky this time revoked it was a charging problem. Confirmed with help from Darryl at Mount Motorcycles.

We watched the Brazil vs. Netherlands game there, which was really good! (despite the scoreline) Returned to Araraquara at night, planning to watch the final tomorrow at a sports bar in town.
