The Amazon – Swam In It…CHECK!
I’ve been home for about a week, yet haven’t had the time to post my Amazonia experiences yet. The re-entry into the US of A life has been jarring (more on that next). However, it’s Important for me to provide evidence of my having knocked “Swimming in the Amazon” off my Bucket List. So here it is.
So, like, there. I did it. No piranha nibbles. No alligator attacks. No Anaconda constrictions. No evil unseen bacteria acquired. And I saw absolutely NO evidence of the dreaded Candiru fish. I was so confident that nothing would happen, that I didn’t even bother with the tight Kevlar speedos. The only danger that I felt was the current – very strong, and relentless and I had to swim pretty hard against it to avoid being swept into Brazil. Nevertheless, a Good Time was had by all.
