Dieter’s mother visited us for two weeks in Brazil. The kids were very happy to see their grandmother again. The first 4 days we spent in Cabedelo until we flew with the plane from Recife to Belém. From Belém you could start different boat tours with a ferry to varies places in the Amazonas. We decided to stay 3 days in Belém to visit the city and to see a different life of Brazil than in the area of the marina in Cabedelo. In Belém were more police men and security but we didn’t feel unsafe at any time.
We had a nice little accommodation "Karimbo Amazonia Residencies" which would have been even sweeter if one paid some more attention on the whole equipment and put some fresh colour on the wall. But the price including the breakfast were all right. From outside you never would have recognized it as a hostel. The owner was very familiar to us because we could use the kitchen and the barbecue and feel like home.
Belém had a lot of different markets from clothes to fruits, fish over to eating in general. We spent a wonderful time in discovering all the different aisles.
In one of the small shops we bought our hamacs for the small cruising trip through the Amazonas.
