Last day in Sucuriju
Acc: room police station
I decided to leave tomorrow. The water level is surely still high, and high tide is at late night around 11 pm, very bad to look for a camp site in relaxing time. I may have to paddle at night. I may not, I don’t know, but assume dry camp sites to reach are hard to find. At least the wind forecast is very low for tomorrow, assuming it may also rain at least not too heavily, as there was quite a strong rainstorm this afternoon. The further I am getting into the Amazon river, the lower the wind and the more shelter.
The next village to reach is Chavez, maybe in 8-10 days, maybe more. Who knows? I don’t really like what is coming ahead, as I really can’t judge the current and the width of the strip close to shore where the current is low, I have to paddle against it. Worst case is that I have to wait the tide, or I may be stuck somewhere on a sand bank. Waves should be within limits, especially further down. All in all: I’d rather be home and having a flu and lying cozy in bed like my partner Peter! All the best wishes to get better anyway…
