Traveling down the Amazon like the locals
It's best to make sure you travel on these river boats with a few buddies. Three days sleeping on the top deck in such close quarters can be a bit tight and a bit dodgy!
The highlight of traveling this way are the stops at the small villages along the river. There are few things as entertaining as watching 20 guys push large farm animals up a log onto a huge rocking barge.
It's pure chaos, and everyone's pissed.
