Ange and I are leaving the coast of Brazil to the most economical countries of Peru and Bolivia. The cheapest option and of course the most intersting is going by boat, i.e. floating the fucking Amazon.
Of course we lit up at the prospects, you know its like some kind of childhood dream of mine, along with flying to the moon and becoming a movie star.
But before we get too excited or get your hopes up, I´ll tell you every traveler we talk to tells us its no romantic childhood dream kind of thing, its bad news. In fact as Brooke tells us- ¨its utterly miserable.¨
So what could be so bad? To name a few-
1.Sicknesses abundant on board
2.Being packed like canned fish body to body, with wierd dudes groping the women at night.
4.Disgustingly unedible food
5.Sitting on your ass for 2 weeks
Anyway you can see theres some reasons to whine, but isn´t there always. I mean shit, i could be stuck working a nine to five right now, but here we are boarding the amazon, hell yeah.
