A night there, then an early flight to Miami, followed by a flight to Aruba, then on to Paramaribo (Suriname) followed by a flight to Belem, where I arrived….. having missed my expedition cruise ship by three hours. So I then had to charter a Cessna the following day to fly up the Amazon, land at an airstrip close to the ship where i was picked up by Zodiac and begin my holiday…
