We’ve been in Brazil for the whole of the summer holidays and now we’re travelling along the Amazon. We have slept in the boat for 5 nights with one more to go. We will have gone over 1500km when we get to Manaus.
On our last day in Morro do Sao Paulo we had to pack carefully for 3 flights and a 6 day river trip and we sorted out the school books as we are going to start World School when everyone else starts school back home. I wish I was there to see everyone but I’m having a great time!
Did you know we’ve been to three islands? Ilha Grande, Boipeba and Morro do Sao Paulo. I really liked all of them. In Morro we stayed in a lighthouse hotel – with a lovely swimming pool with a funicular that goes up to it! The lighthouse is there behind me on the balcony. The real lighthouse to warn boats is up on the hill!
This year, I’m going to read some of the same books that everyone is reading in Year 3 back at school. I have got ‘Flat Stanley’ with me – an actual ‘Flat Stanley’ not the book, which is on my Kindle! That’s because Miss Place gave him to me so he could travel with me in my backpack and visit some of the places we’re going to!
For those who don’t know, Stanley is a boy in a book who gets squashed flat by a pin board and posted to California to visit his friend! Miss Jane read that story to us in Year 2.
I took Flat Stanley out to see Rio de Janiero! Here are some of the photos of him with us in front of the statue of Christ the Redeemer and Flat Stanley balancing on top of Sugarloaf Mountain!
Can you spot him hiding in the bushes? And can you see him lounging in the hammock when I’m getting the books sorted out for home school in Morro?
