Day 10 - On the Amazon River - Brazil

Because of the sandbar delay we are not in Santerem... but on the positive side extra daylight hours of cruising on the river gave us a continuing panorama of the shore line - sometimes within half a mile, at other times several miles off. Really nice to experience but photographically pretty boring, so have inserted a few boat pictures here, seen at various points.

So many boats of all descriptions.... but very few modern 'cabin cruisers.'
The classic river boats were everwhere and so were skiffs, barges, freighters...


We arrived Santarem 12 hours late.
Shore did not look too inviting that night . We stayed aboard.
Tours tomorrow morning.
