Rí­o Paraguay Boat Trip, Day 3

May 4, 2006
Day 218

Picture of kids playing.

Kids playing in a small village.

Once again, we got up at sunrise today and stopped all day at small villages. The boat got more and more empty the entire day. Brazil was visible on the right bank of the river all day. Somehow it seemed more exotic because it was completely packed with gigantic forests of palm trees, whereas the Paraguay side had almost none.

I ate a bunch more pears and the same rice-and-meat food that I had been eating since I got on the boat. I started to feel a little sick to my stomach and almost vomited this afternoon. I'm not sure if it was from the food or just from sitting around for three days, but I definitely didn't feel too good.

I learned that boat should arrive at Bahia Negra tomorrow morning at around 8:00. It's been a great trip, but I'm ready to leave the mighty ship now and walk on dry land once again.
