Jan 15th Boca da Valeria

A very small village, so small there are no ship tours. Only about 100 villagers live on this river outpost. The villagers offered a canoe ride up river for $5.00 per person. Kids galore all wanting candy and $1 for you to take their photo. And of course for you our readers a few dollars were distributed in this small village.  And did I mention it was HOT?  The bar had a sign that said cool beer and soft drinks.  I doubt the beer was cold.  So basically there is a church, a school, and a bar.   There are no cars.  The only thing besides photo ops was a chance to buy beads.  Brad was glad he work hiking boots as the terrain was a combination of dirt and mud.  If we ever return to this port, we would think about taking the little boat ride up one of the tributaries.  It would probably still be really hot and if it rained, it would be hot, humid and wet.
