In May 2009, I flew to Brazil to navigate on one of the most famous rivers of the world: The Amazon River It was an amazing adventure which allowed me to learn, meet new people, and enjoy life.
Reasons To discover a new culture and experience their lifestyle To learn a new language: Portuguese To meet new people
To do humanitarian work
This was our first CaĂŻpirinha, which is a Brazilian drink made of cachaĂ§a, sugar, and lime. Tasty!!!
Getting a good night sleep on a boat can be challenging. But when you have a hammock, you just rock like a baby and fall fast asleep.
On a little island, we decided to have some funâ€Ś
I caught one of these blue crabs…
… with my bare hands!!!!
I’m NOT kidding!
I even got to be on the air during a local radio show!
Waldimir showed me traditional dances. Everybody dances in Brazil. Canadian men have a lot of catching up to do.
