Pantanal, Day 3

Flavio lead another 5 am hike which turned out to be a fruitful animal spotting one but I decided to stay in in case Adam needed any assistance when he got up.  Adam was in pain still but managed to get up and join us for breakfast and then went back to our room to relax while we went out for another boat ride, this time with Jean.  Unfortunately, Jean wasn’t as good a spotter as Flavio but we did see a pair of howler monkeys and a few other animals.

We headed back to Cuiaba late in the afternoon and got dinner with Claudia and her parents at a restaurant that had been recommended in several guidebooks.  We went with their “fish riodizio,” comprised of a sampler of various local fish.  It was very good–most of the fish was prepared in different stews which were very tasty.
