Shopping for supplies today. Four different stores to get what we needed. Even though one looked like a Sam’s or COSTCO it didn’t have everything we needed. 

Spaghetti for dinner and then off at midnight. 

One thing that has always tugged at me is the water. I’ve never had a chance to explore it. Sitting here on the bow of the ship as we first head south down the Rio Negro and soon up the Rio Solimões is glorious. The southern sky is completely foreign to me. Last time I was south of the equator I was five years old. 

Right now the river is at its peak. Other times of the year we would have to sail around this peninsula as the channel on the map wouldn’t be big enough for the boat but tonight we sail over the jungle canopy in the dark.
