Where Is Safarigal?

DAY 20 – January 24th

Up the Amazon   We awoke to scenery that was essentially unchanged since yesterday. Miles and miles of river and forest. The river is wider at the moment, so we are not as close to the shore, and we have not seen any more fishing boats.   The captain...

DAY 19 – January 23rd

  In the Amazon River   We woke up this morning at anchor in Macapa. Brazilian immigration officials came on board, and have cleared the ship. We had all handed our passports into the Pursers Desk, so fortunately we did not need to be seen in person....

DAY 18 – January 22nd

At sea in the tropics   It is another hot, humid, and overcast day, but with the breeze on deck it was very pleasant to sit outside and read. We are getting closer and closer to the equator. Brian has never been this far south by sea before, and the last time...

DAY 17 – January 21st

At sea   We are now in the tropics, and instead of a bright sunny day it is hot, overcast, and humid, with frequent rainstorms. We decided not to sit out on deck, and retreated to our usual spot in the Commodore Club. This is the perfect place to watch the...

DAY 13 – January 17th

    At sea   There is something to be said for balcony cabins! It is an unbelievable treat to be able to wake up and sit on the balcony, and watch the ocean go by, sipping a mimosa. I do miss the windowsill and seeing the water right outside the window,...

DAY 9 – January 13th

At sea   Here it is, Friday the 13th, and here we are in the Bermuda Triangle. Now if that’s not tempting fate, I don’t know what is.   However, the weather is sunny and the water is calmer, and it would be most unlikely if we suddenly disappeared.  ...

DAY 8 – January 12th

    Bermuda   Land at last. That is what a few passengers are saying – most of us would have been fine with another sea day.   We docked at 8:30, and we went ashore at about 9:30. The last time we were in Bermuda I ended up in the hospital, so I...
