A great hotel and a pleasant change from hostel life. The room was clean and huge. The showers warm, a little bizarre that the shower door opened into the shower stall requiring a little maneuvering to get in and out. The pool facilities are amazing and the breakfast buffet is unbeatable. The zoo is a nice little addition, but you feel a little sorry for the animals. It is a very large building and compound, so make sure you pay attention to where you go, so you don't get lost.

Manaus sits on the Rio Negro and just a couple of km south of Manaus the Rio Negro meets the Amazon and creates a super huge Amazon River.
Our first stop was a local indigenous village where they still live in grass roofed houses and walk around semi-naked covered in paint. They ...
... I wasn't a fan but they were not too bad. Hows that for a vague description? Next we went to the area they make manoc. A place for making this flour like substance which is the backbone of food for these people. Its a sheltered outdoors structure, with these goant cooking bowls - that could create a giant pizza! I cant remember but its another long process to create manoc - a seasonal job I believe that the whole family gets involved in. A task still ...
... did this) and completed our other chores, and as it turned out (as it always turns out) a guy at the hostel knew a guy who ran a boat, which was cheaper than we had been offered and included a transfer to the boat, so we went with this option. It was a little risky, as we had heard that the boats can vary a lot in terms of quality, but we decided to risk it. So, tomorrow morning when we board the boat, what we encounter may be the make or break of our Amazonian adventure!
