Flag of Brazil  ,
Tuesday, January 29, 2008

Ok everyone, to be honest, I don't really have a story or comment for this one.  It is just worth mentioning that a group of us from a hostel in Campo Grande, Brazil decided to look at some wildlife and take some experiences from the largest wetland in the world, the Pantanal. 
In total, I had 52 mosquito bites, a sore backbone from mule riding (those suckers are a lot faster than I thought), a bruised and swollen foot (also from mule riding), and a growing rash on my arm (its origin, I have no idea where it came from).
But, we came across Caimans (alligator-like reptiles), fished and caught Piranhas, saw Capybaras (rat-looking animals as large as dogs) eat watermelons, and held an Anaconda (not the one I hold every morning when I pee . . . just kidding, I couldn't resist that corny joke).
I never really was a fan of animals and watching them in their habitat.  But, I must admit, this is yet another experience that has changed my likes and dislikes.
