Jan 18th Parintins and the “Boi Bumba Festival”

Nice large town with very pleasant inhabitants. Their Boi Bumba festival show was energetic and colorful.  The hill to get up to town was steep, but the Boy Scouts were on hand to help people and did a great job.  There were something like a “tuk tuk” ride available to take people the additional two blocks to the theater.  Although the theater was supposedly air conditioned, it was still warm and sticky.  Pico Sours were served and they were delicious.  We were near the exit because we got into the show near the time to start.  The good news is we were one of the first to leave the theater which got us back to the tender area pretty quickly and were we happy about that as the line was clear up that steep hill we told you about.

    Brad,
    Wow, some great shots of the big festival. Glad to see the Boy Scouts (my two sons are Eagles) were there to help you cross the street. Ha! I am enjoying the travels of my former tablemates. However, you have been too hot, and Tanman too cold. I can’t wait until next month when Carolyn and I go cruising again.
    Bill
