Traveling the Amazon

My friends and I slept in a boathouse on the Amazon River our second night in Manaus, Brazil.  From giant cockroaches to swimming piranhas, we saw it all.  I am so grateful to have been able to experience this slow way of life.

6th GradersLast week I spoke to about sixty sixth graders at Maryetta Elementary School about my trip to South America during my Semester at Sea adventure!  In this picture I was telling the kids a story about when my friends and I stayed in a riverboat on the Amazon River.  We had caught a crocodile on a late night outing and our guide brought it back for us to play with.  They were a great group of kids.  We had fun!
