A New Years Day summary of the "Great Escape" Trip so far from the kids as we leave South America for our next big adventure in Australia ...
Hello, this  is Jack here sending a message to all my friends. Happy New Year. We had Christmas in the Amazon, please look at the photos. A message to Sol, Father Christmas did come. We had a really nice time at the Treehouse, we saw some friendly Monkeys, we saw a parrot and one skidded over my head. I held a big Snake and I caught a Piranha fish. I swam in the river with Dolphins but they were not very friendly. A message to Ryo: I have been practicing my flips. I am in Chile and tonight we are going to Australia. Goodbye and I will leave another message later. Love you lots Jack.
Hi everyone, this is Imi wishing you all a very happy New Year. I finally lost my wobbly front tooth on Christmas Eve in the Amazon, and guess what not only did Father Christmas come, but also the Tooth Fairy came and left me R$5! Wow! So far Ive been swimming nearly every day, which is great as I had new goggles for Christmas. Ive driven a beach buggy, held an alligator and had a huge Anaconda round my neck! In Buenos Aires I went to a Tango show until midnight and saw a beautiful lady wearing amazing dresses dancing the Tango.
Hi everyone, this is Abi just saying we are having a gr8 time!! I am glad the school play went well. On Christmas Eve we went alligator hunting and I held a baby Cayman . After opening our pressies on Christmas Day we went swimming with some very unfriendly dolphins (they were massive and pink)! We were bumped of our flight to go to Argentina. But TAM the airline paid for us to go to the luxury Tropical Hotel in Manaos, which even had a wave pool. Then we got upgraded to Club Class. There were massive seats that turn into proper beds. Now we are in Chile and tonight we set of to go to Australia!! Happy New Year to you all!
