It was 3.30 by the time the show had finished and we’d had a look at the craft stalls. We decided against it staying in Parintins a little bit longer, we’ve been here before, and although it is a delightful town, there isn’t a lot to capture our attention. So we joined the queue for the riverboat back to the ship. We found out while waiting in line that there was still no power on board, and that the latest update was that it should be back by 5.30pm. We were back about 4.30, and noticed just as we arrived that lights were beginning to show in cabins. Power...... Yippee! Unfortunately the problem is not completely resolved. We still don’t have full lighting in the cabin, but we can flush the loo. (Phew!) So we had a very late lunch, no coffee yet, but I will find some soon. As a minor compensation, we are to be given a complimentary glass of champagne at dinner tonight. As Peter says though, it all adds to the adventure.
