Our guide had a morning all planned out for us but it didn´t include a swim in the river. What trip to the amazon basin would be complete without taking a swim in the mighty river itself? After discussing a few different plans of action, i came up with a schedule that would allow us to do everything the guide proposed AND get in our swim.
So, on our last morning in the Amazon Basin, at around 6 a.m. we headed out on the motor boat down the Yanacau river (a tributary) to the Amazon itself. After an uneventful 30 minute ride, we arrived at our swimming spot. Michele decided to jump in first. No fear!
Here is a picture of us swimming in the Amazon!
