The Pantanal is a massive wetland of 230,000 square kilometres.
Day 1 : Once we arrived we headed out animal spotting on a boat trip. Twas quite warm so a lot of them were sleeping or in the shade. We did spot some caimen, tucans, monkeys, king fishers and other random animals who´s names i can´t remember.
Day 2 : We went piranha finishing this morning, i caught two (but they slipped the hook). Connie got none but he tried! In the afternoon we went horse riding, spotted some wildlife, waded through some swamp and did some galloping. Ass and back were quite sore after that.
Day 3 : We went Anaconda hunting, i didnt look too hard cause i didnt really want to find any! And we didnt...
We slept in hammocks for the three nights, seemed like fun at the beginning, but our backs were done in by the end. Tempertures hit the 40´s and we spend most of the afternoons asleep. Food consisted of a lot of beans and rice and of course the piranhas we caught (not much meat in them).
