Our tour guide Zacharias is a Swiss man that moved to the Amazon riverbank 30 years ago and never left. In his most precise Swiss accent, he shares his insights of the Amazon:
Zacharias: “Up here on the tree, you see the sloth.”
Zacharias: “The sloth comes down to the ground only once a week, yes. For shit.”
"The Caboclo people only work half of the day. there is no need to work more, there are fishes in the sea, and fruits on trees. For the other half of the day they do other things, like making love. They can do this on the hammock. Some interesting positions."
We arrived in the night at the eco lodge, Pavan asks: ”Is there a hot tub in this lodge?”
Zacharias: “What is this.. hot.. tub..? Do you mean sauna? No we have no sauna here, it is not popular in Brazil. Sauna is life.”
And yea it was. It was hot as hell when the sun came out the next morning.
Zanoon: “Do you see animals often here in the Amazon and in the jungle?”
