The days seemed to melt together. Swinging on hammocks, eating rice and beans with spaghetti and mystery meats, playing dice, watching the drunken Colombians, doing push ups, taking showers next to toilets, and watching the shore has been my routine the last three plus days. Being on a slow boat down the worldīs largest river allows one much time to do not much. I arrived to Manaus late last night. Itīs a seedy city in the middle of the Amazon. I will be here only a day or two before jumping back on a slow boat going down a big river.

I do not envy you. 24 hrs was bad enough, 3 or more days and drunk Columbians and mystery meats and I am glad to be in CA. Dad

miss you a lot
I've been back like 5 days and it seems like 5 years already. Can't seem to get going on anything progressive, like buying a new (used) car (found the stolen Honda - stripped - 5 blocks away, the buggers), cleaning the carpet, make cookies, clean the bathroom. I am still so tired from climbing trees and red-eye flights. I am suppose to start emailing family about my trip and your blogs say it all, almost. I might add a grunt or groan or 'what bird?' now and then, but you say it all so well. I am glad I'm back breathing all the smokey air and watching CA burn and all that but that Amazon. Does have a certain appeal. We did see a lot of its mystery so the unknown part isn't so alluring I guess. Hope you stay safe. Love, Dad
