Captain Kitty's Insatiable Wunderlust I have been suffering from Wunderlust since 1998. This disease is non-curable, and I will die from it. The only treatment is a psychiological temporary displacement, and as the disease increases in strength my displacement must become stronger as well. Destinations keep getting further and further, longer and longer. If I don't treat it, I will fall into a chemical depression and put myself at risk from malnutrition, fatigue, anxiety attacks, and clinical depression. This blog will be my records living life with Wunderlust.

Boating Through The Amazon Aboard The M/Y Tucano

BRAZIL | Sunday, 11 February 2007 | Views [1051]


That describes this trip perfectly. The rainforest is a little different than I initially thought it would look like, it's drier and there aren't as many gooey mushroom plants LOL just a lot of different trees, branches, and vines. The vines are hard like wood, I don't think Tarzan could swing on these! Anyhow,

I drank a lot of wine last night and was quite ill. Blame it on the motion of the boat, the Amazon humidity, or the thick red wine... I am feeling much better today (it's also late afternoon) I skipped out on this morning's excursion, but I don't care I needed the sleep. I still am quite dehydrated.

We finally got to swim today! The water was warm & red, I could swim underneath you and not be seen. I actually scared Jimbo and Gabriel (the guide). He scared me in return, using a peice of wood. Bugger.

Been taking loads of photos, I can't wait to develop them!

I haven't quit smoking yet but I think it's (sort of) possible. I only have a few more days of this amazing trip & it will be all over too fast... I am really enjoying this sun and warmth, I think I'm getting a tan and I'm seeing a lot of beautiful stuff! I'm so lucky to be here!

--next day--

SO here we are again, it's hot and still hasn't rained. [for the record, this is the rainy season. in the rainforest.]

My health seems good, I'm eating really fresh & exotic food but I'm not losing any weight which is strange. Probably due to the 3 full meals a day + snacks! This morning's excursion was short, it seems like there is less and less wildlife. Our outings are still 4 a day but not as long as usual.

I found a cockroach in the bathroom... I named him Archie (for Helen). I AM SO EXHAUSTED.

The exursions are beginning to get repetative and I think I want to skip out... I think only 3 ppl have missed anything so far. This trip has been amazing!

So relaxing, and exhausting at the same time!

I'm getting hungry, but I don't want to eat. I'm going to go home a Hippo.

Temperatures have been ranging 28-33 degrees Celcius, even at night. The sun set's around 6:30, and today it rained for 5 minutes (sunny).

Time to change into outfit #35!

I LOVE PIRHANA FISHING (I didn't really catch anything except a couple babies). Pirhana is great fried in batter... MMMMMMMM.
