The jungle trek was amazing- the first day we spent the night in hammocks on deck having spent the day piranha fishing amongst other things and in the evening we were out catching alligators! (this was achieved by hypnotizing them by torchlight then pulling them out of the water!)
On the second night we spent a memorable night sleeping in the jungle...we slung our hammocks between trees before nightfall then a local bushman lit a camp fire on which he cooked chickens in the traditional way on sticks in the fire- delicious if somewhat undercooked!
The following morning we were up at 5.30 as we had to get back to Manaus for the 6pm night bus to our next destination... stopping on the way to visit an indigenous village and paddling a longboat along some of the backwaters to spot some of the wildlife!
