World Trip 2009-2010: Day 21 – Pantanal, Brazil

After a night in which we learnt that luckily no one really snored we set out on a day safari. We saw lots of different wildlife, caiman, capivara and giant river otters. With the caiman we went down to the river and we each slowly got closer, David even got into the water — no way would I do that. Later in the day we went horse riding. Emma opted out and after getting on the horse Kelly decided it best not to go, which I totally understood. We went riding for about 2 hours over the property, it was about 35 and we all sweated a bit. My horse enjoyed following the lead guide but obviously wanted to gallop a little. Andrew’s horse started a mini gallop right near the end of the ride, I think he was happy to finish. After a night of David playing a guitar and sitting out by a fire (it keeps away the mosquitoes) we all watched the stars. It was a bit unusual with the temperature being so high but I didn’t get beaten.
