BRAZIL PART 3: MANAUS & THE AMAZON

IT WAS SO HOT IN THE AMAZON! 

RYAN MADE ME CARRY ALL THE LUGGAGE






SUCH GOOD CHURROS, THEY PUT CHOCOLATE OR CARMEL DOWN THE CENTER


ON THE AMAZON RIVER CLOSE TO THE MEETING OF THE WATERS. FLYING IN WAS SO COOL BECAUSE YOU COULD SEE WHERE THE TWO RIVERS MEET UP BUT DON'T MIX FOR MILES



I WAS A LITTLE WORRIED ABOUT MY CLOTHES








OUR HOTEL IN THE AMAZON


SITTING WITH MY FEET IN THE WATER...A LITTLE NERVOUS


RYAN KILLING THE BUGS IN MY NET, HE HATES BUGS!


NOT SO SURE ABOUT STRANGERS SLEEPING THIS CLOSE TO ME!


YES, WE SWAM IN THE AMAZON RIVER. NO WE DIDN'T GET ATTACKED BY PIRANAHAS. BUT THEY WERE DEFINITELY THERE, AND IT WAS DEFINITELY A LITTLE CREEPY




A PIRAHANA SOMEONE CAUGHT THAT NIGHT...I TOLD YOU THEY WERE THERE!



MORE PHASE 10..NOT MUCH TO DO DURING A THUNDERSTORM EXCEPT TRY TO HIDE FROM THE BUGS


SO PROUD OF HIS MOSQUITO NET


SLEEPING IN HERE WAS INTERESTING, AT FIRST I WAS SCARED OF BUGS SO WHEN THE LIGHTS WENT OUT I TURNED MY FLASHLIGHT ON TO MAKE SURE THERE WERE NO BUGS IN WITH ME! BUT THEN WHEN I FELT LIKE I WAS SAFE INSIDE MY NET I STARTED WONDERING ABOUT WHAT OTHER KIND OF ANIMALS COULD COME INTO MY BED. THATS WHEN I WAS GRATEFUL THAT I WAS FAR FROM THE DOOR SO IF A SNAKE SNUCK IN THEY HAD A LOT OF OTHERS TO CHOSE FROM FIRST!







AARON AND I GETTING READY TO EAT A GRUB...AKUNA MATATA!


OH NO, WE'RE LOST!




AND HERE IS THE VIDEO OF ME EATING THE GRUB. RYAN DIDN'T THINK THAT I WOULD DO, BUT IT ACTUALLY WASN'T TOO BAD. IT TASTED LIKE COCONUT WATER! IT WAS A GLOW BUG SO THAT NIGHT I WAS PRETTY SURE THEY KNEW I HAD EATEN THIER BABYS AND WERE GOING TO ATTACK ME...LUCKILY WE HAD BUG SPRAY!

video
NOT SURE HOW TO ROTATE THE VIDEO, SORRY!
