We arrived in Brazil late on Tuesday, August 12, made our way to our hostel, and got to sleep a bit after midnight. The city of Manaus was quiet as we rode from the airport, passing the futbol stadium where World Cup games were played just a few weeks ago.
This morning, the city was alive and active. After breakfast, we walked around town with shopkeepers opening their stalls, uniformed children making their way to school, and commuters going to work on city buses.
Now, taking a break from the afternoon heat, we are resting before venturing out again to find food for dinner.
A very good day.
Tomorrow, we depart for our Amazon tour. www.antonio-jungletours.com.
