We took our new truck for a test drive on Friday, 513 kms (about 300 miles) of TransAmazon Highway. About half of this stretch of highway is now paved, which is such a treat. The other half…here are some photos. It was a treat having our truck. The trip took about 12 hours, including a two-hour lunch break with the Wilsons in Pacajá.
One of the girls took these photos out of our window this week. It reminds me of a time in Altamira when Olivia was just small. A large iguana, about 5 feet long, fell out of the tree right above where she was jumping on the trampoline. It landed right beside her.
I think this one lost it’s footing because it was watching the camera. Don’t you hate it when that happens?
Annika organized an all night party for the youth of the Marabá church, to celebrate bringing in the New Year. The preparation involved scouring the chacará for branches and old wood to build a bonfire. The fire lasted through two cloudbursts, and the party lasted until daylight, the first morning of 2013.
