Have a busy day ahead of us sorting stuff out before we leave on our 3am flight tomorrow morning (great stuff). Go to Post Office to send some stuff home, bank, repacking our very full bags etc. Then get bus a few kms out of town to INPA which is a botanical park and laboratory where they keep and research the Amazonian animals in a jungle like environment. Is pretty good with caimans, monkeys, manatees (like big seals), turtles. We also see a baby howler monkey which is incredibly cute and a small sloth too which is cool.

Back home before it rains. Are off to the theatre tonight for a free dance show before we leave and embark on the long journey to Sao Luis via Belem. We are leaving the Dragoman group now and heading off on our own again. Has been good to break the journey with a group and do things we wouldnt have had a chance to do otherwise. Also we have made money as we spent less on the kitty than was planned (Dave attributes it to his controlling it!) so got some money back plus we came 1st and 2nd in poker so make over $20 there too! Think everyone is glad we are leaving so they can keep their money though.
