Stop at a biggish town to buy ice for our drinks cooler (very important) and then keep going to Equator line which is just a marker that looks a bit like a giant hockey stick. It is roasting hot in the sun esp as is midday and we stop for lunch. I cant bear the heat outside for more than 10 mins so have to head inside the truck and hope for a breeze.
Pressing onwards we are about 2 hours outside Manaus but decide to bush camp as this will be our last night of camping (we think for a while at least. All the rest of the group are staying on the truck to Rio). We find a field full of small coconut trees and grass and a man on a tractor. This turns out to be Juan Carlos who kindly agrees to let us camp in his field although he probably didnt understand a word of the Spanglishuese used.
Wake up at 6ish to the loudest ever howler monkey howling sounds like hundreds of them but suspect its very few.
