Ascending South America

Day 64 8th November

Finally River Amazona. After over two months and driving more then 6000 km and eight rivers finally we reached Amazon, world biggest river.
Reaching Amazon river required celebration, Whisky bottle was promptly opened and passed around.

“Amazonas” finally in Amazon.
Later in the evening dark clouds started to build up and a decision had to taken to stop immediately or carry on… Andy had to take a quick decision and act on it.
It was long day’s ride, both emotionally and physically draining. We finally reached Amazon and were greeted with big thunder storm. Instead of camping in rain, crew decided to stay in a guest house at Itacoatiara.

It was Steen’s childhood dream to come to Amazon. His father who was a ship broker, had travelled to Amazon 47 years back and told him stories.

Getting ready to leave for the day. Stefano does a final check to Steen boat which was glued once again.
With grey clouds we had to be prepared for the rains too.
