Day 6-The Amazon

We woke up this morning and after breakfast started a trekking tour with the rest of the cruise. It is amazing to see all the beautiful flowers and vegetation in this region. There are so many species of animals, some that I have never even heard of. The guide on the tour really helped us learn more about the area by explaining the different species. After trekking we returned to the boat and went swimming for about an hour. It was relaxing to take a break from the outdoors but I was excited to get back off the boat to learn more about the nature of the Amazon. We traveled to the Samauma Island that is located in the Anavilhanas Archipelago, the largest river archipelago in the world. We went exploring on the Island and found many interesting animals like butterflies, birds, reptiles, and other animals. The islands were so beautiful and full of life. We even saw a monkey in the island trees and we were lucky enough to see a parrot fly by over our heads. Unfortunately we had to leave the island and now we are back on the boat. We’re going to rest up for tomorrow’s adventures.
