Tomorrow we’re going to be in Manaus in the heart of the Amazon. If I was back home, I’d be going back to school tomorrow instead! I’ve been making loads of friends along the journey so far but I’m still missing my friends back home and I wish I was going to see them all tomorrow for the beginning of Year 5!
You can see on the map in my photos how far we’ve travelled in the last 5 days – about 1500km or more from Belem and we’re planning to travel all the way through Peru to Equador by boat.
When we have been on the river so far traveling up from Belem you can’t really see any wildlife except for a few river dolphins but I keep missing them they pop up and back down so quickly!
When we are in Manaus we will be able to go into the jungle and then we should be able to see some really interesting wildlife including two toed and three toed slothes, piranhas, more dolphins and monkeys.
Meanwhile, here are some photos of wildlife we’ve seen so far in Brazil – a ladybird without spots!? A Boa Constrictor lounging above our heads as we sat and had lunch in a beachside cafe! And some mystery shots! Can you guess what they are?
