|Market in Alter do Chao|
We like Alter Do Chao, it's a bit like going to the seaside, Brazilian style. There is a little sort of market square, surrounded by shops and restaurants. It's a lovely place to spend money in, and even better, it has free wi-fi, which meant Peter was entertained whilst I spent cash.
From there we walked down to and along the river front. There is a little island in the centre of the lagoon called Love Island. For a small cost, a water taxi will take you across to the island where you can enjoy food and drinks in the bars and restaurants as well as a swim in the Lago Verde, (Green Lake).

We did get to see some beautiful birds though. I'm sorry that the pictures are a little blurry, but you'll appreciate the colours.

We'll get to Santana about lunchtime tomorrow. It'll be our last port on the Amazon which is sad, but Peter and I are escorting, so we'll get to have another look the Marco Zero Monument in Macapa, which is good. So here's to tomorrow.
