We have just come back to shore from spending 3 nights exploring the Amazon on the Iberostar Grand Amazon Hotel Ship. While on board we took a motor boat and visited a local Caboclo (river dweller) family, took a trek through the Amazon (there were bugs), caught a piranha and woke up early to catch the sun rising over the river.
My favourite parts were the many animal experiences we had. I saw monkeys, held a Caimen Alligator and hugged a three toed Sloth. I also enjoyed the food - açai and cupuaçu are two of my new favourite fruits!
Today we are recovering from the rigorous cruise ship schedule (and all inclusive drinking) and spending most of our time sleeping. Tomorrow we fly to Salvador, the capital of the Bahia state of Brazil, to discover Capoeira, fresher than fresh seafood and the beach.
I'll miss you Slothy.
