Brazil

I was looking for a new place to photograph, so in November 2016  I flew to Brazil.  The trip was a total of 10 days, of which seven were spent on the MV Tucano (photos below), traveling up the Rio Negro and Amazon Rivers.  Although the boat holds a maximum of 16 guests, there were only four of us on board.  We were outnumbered by the crew which resulted in exceptional service by all involved.  Although it was hot and humid and the very beginning of the rainy season, it was a good trip - we experienced only one afternoon of rain.  Exploring the jungle, visiting villages, fishing for Piranhas, swimming, and lots of interesting photography, all made for a fascinating trip.  I think next time I might go during the height of the rainy season, when I understand you will see more wildlife. If you are thinking about a trip to Manaus and then up the Rio Negro, please do not hesitate to email me - I‘d be happy to help in any way I can.  Cheers, Stephen
