South American Trip Recap (3)

So, during the latter part of February/early March we set off on our luxury cruise up the coast of Brazil culminating with a 1,000 mile trip up the Amazon to Manaus. After two days sailing north we stopped at Ilhabela, Brazil. It was here that we got our first taste of the rain forest. In fact, the rain was coming down so hard that the road we took was partially washed out and we all had to get off our school bus while the driver negotiated his way up through the mud. While we didn’t see any animals or birds, we certainly got a flavor of what the weather is like in this part of Brazil.
