Dick is up at 6:30AM even though it appears to be still dark. A look outside shows that it is light but that it is pouring rain. We are moving very slowly and soon drop anchor. Carolyn is up at her usual time and we go to breakfast about 9AM. Out of the dining room window we can see a tender waiting to enter the creek that, evidently, leads to the village we are to visit this morning. The writeup we are given says this is a small village whose life is hunting and fishing. Terry Breen has repeatedly told us that we will not see any "Indians" along the Amazon as all the indigenous people (Indians) live very secluded lives and are in parts of the Amazon Rain Forest far removed from the Amazon River. So, our writeup starts out by telling us this is an "Indian" village. Is they is or is they ain’t? Well actually they are river people. A group of people who are a mixture of Indigenous, Portugese and Black and are very proud of their heritage.
The rain appears to be letting up by the time breakfast is over so we prepare to go ashore and head for the tender dock. We luck out and walk right on one and off we go. We have to wait for the one docking spot to clear and while doing so some of the lucky ones, Carolyn included, get to see the famous pink dolphin of the Amazon River. Carolyn confirms that it is "Bubble Gum" pink.
Once ashore, we are greeted by a swarm of children all expecting to be given something; anything! We are sad that we did not know of this opportunity or we would have brought more of the Silly Bandz bracelets like the ones we took to Fanning Island last September.
About 1PM we go to lunch and then retire to our room to do some laundry, exchange messages with our daughter and work on this blog.
