Where I stayed
In someone´s front yard
Leaving Venezuela and entering Brazil
Finding and using an ATM! (can´t do that in Venezuela!)
Finding a public women´s restroom with toilet paper and a flushing toilet -- fancy!
Stopping by a nice river for lunch and a swim
Camping in some guy´s front yard
Crossing the equator and officially entering the Southern Hemisphere
A duck flying into the windshield of the truck and causing the windshield to shatter (thank goodness for the protective coating that held it together the last 100 km to Manaus!)
Arriving in Manaus, we checked out a Brazilian tradition -- an all you can eat meat-on-a-stick place. In addition to a extensive salad bar, people come around with all varieties of meats on sticks, slicing off pieces onto your plate. Along with the typical things (sausages, chicken, pork, lots of types of beef), they also had lamb, and the most unique -- chicken hearts. Which actually would have been ok if nobody had told me they were chicken hearts.
