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.
Last 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!
