Like clockwork, I wake up at 6 AM and again take my shower in our shoilet under the warm brown water of the Amazon.
It is a repeat of yesterday's breakfast with a roll, ham, cheese and fried egg with very sweet coffee with warm milk. I get my breakfast quickly, but while I am eating, a huge line forms at the same again time we approach our second stop some 8 hours than scheduled. Tomorrow, I will be sure to get here early to avoid the lines.
Our second stop is in Gurupa around 7 AM to just handle passengers and not cargo so hopefully we will catch up some except for a slight delay when two of our passengers got back to the dock after the gangplank had been stowed. They had made a cigarette run.
The Amazon has opened up and must now be at least a mile wide. the vegetation of Jungle vegetation comes right up and into the river. Large chunks of vegetation swirl past our boat with an occasional log that causes the boat to curve around the floating debris.
