Back to the normal tourist routine.  After breakfast, we were all taken to the stable and assigned horses that are gentle and trained to take gringo tourists on rides.  It was a pleasant excursion but we all had sore asses afterwards and didnīt see all that much wildlife.  They made Terere tea and passed it around cowboy style.  Then we went back to the lodge and I walked around the grounds to see the many birds just right there in the garden.  Heaps of Nandays and Quakers-Chaska and Ixchelīs cousins! 

We had a buffet lunch, then went to the lake to paddle around in Canadian canoes.  Ina loved this trip as he is quite familiar with canoeing, I as nervouse the whole time the bloody thing would tip over and ruin my camera gear.  It was a pleasnat enough excursion but once again, we didnīt see that much wildlife, there were a couple giant anteaters on one side of the lake.  We stayed until sunset to get some nice photos and went back to the lodge to shower and get ready for the Pantaneiro (cowboy) BBQ.

The BBQ was fun, they had a couple people playing guitar and singing and brought the meat around churrascuria style.  Ina started teaching the local to play the spoons which was hilarious!  We stuffed ourselves silly and crashed out.
