We have officially touched down and started our Amazon adventure!
Having spent nearly 48hrs in and out of airports and on planes we are pretty exhausted and we were very relieved to arrive at The Swamy Hotel in Cruzeiro Do Sul, courtesy of our taxi driver who avoided most of the pot holes! To be shown to a room with a working bathroom and a comfortable bed was all we could ask for after little sleep and no showers for so long.
After freshening up slightly we hit the town to ‘do some touristing’ and suss out our options for dinner. We quickly realised that the general vibe was very chilled and that tourists are definitely a rarity in these parts!
In answer to a question we have already had sent to us “What will you eat?” The video blog “Day 1” shows that eating isn’t always that easy – and we haven’t even entered the rainforest yet!
We love having questions coming in, so don’t be afraid to send us anything you want to know about us, the rainforest, the tribe and we will do our best to answer as many as possible.
Our latest video blog “Day 1” will be going live at 9am UK time this morning on our Last Chance to Paint Youtube and Facebook. Make sure you don’t miss it!
