Day 83: Monday, 19th March: Amazonas a board the Amatista (Peru)

Day 3 of G-Adventures of Amazon river boat adventures in depth PVIIA

First night on the Amatista. Somehow the whole wooden boat and especially our room seems to be uneven. We sleep now in the other direction not to get blood clots in the head. Nights are not to hot – it is a pity that no window can be openend and that there is no mosquito nets to let the cool air from the river in.
