Voyage to Heart of Amazon
The ship at sunset
We spent the night at the Tropical. Beautiful old wooden doorways and long, haunted corridors. Reminds me of THE SHINING. Expect Jack Nicholson to pop out at any moment, "Here's Johnny!".
Met our companions for the next week. Quite a motley crew we are!! Should be interesting.
Day 2 - Cruising the Rio Negro
5:30 am wake up call - tough on the old gal! Walk in the forest. Don't know when I've been so wet. Rain soaked everything through and through.
Wet, wet, wet!!! Camera is toast - condensation formed in the baggie used to keep it dry.
Day 4 of My Captivity:
My captors continue to torment me - beginning with the banging on my door at 5:30 in the morning, cold showers and forced marches to nowhere through the hot, steamy jungle. My only sustenance is the cruel gruel of mantioch. I fear I am slowly being poisoned. When will it end? To what do I owe this cruel fate? Ah yes, it was my once best …

Am afraid the Malarone may not be working - seem to be delusional. Our captors made us swim in the black waters, where just yesterday I observed them catching the flesh eating piranha. In a …
I woke in a dream state this morning - Howler Monkeys screaming in my ears. It felt as if the talons of a Red Headed Vulture were searing into my brain. Then the pounding, the pounding wouldn't stop! I startled, jumping up to open the door - only to discover the pounding was not on the door, but in my head. They tell us we may return to …
Home At Last
My flat butt aquired from the hard, wooden canoe seats, has been of some use in the long jouney back. However, my sufferings have not ended upon the return to civilization. Seem to be having difficulty readjusting. I find myself looking upwards and carrying my binoculars for no apparent reason. Yesterday my son caught me throwing food out of the …
I had fun writing my daily diary of the time on the Rio Nego. In truth, it says nothing of the beauty of the place and the people. The flavor of the sunsets and the stillness of the water at night. One could not tell where the night sky met its end and the dark waters began. It was if we were on another planet, one with two moons - the …
