My lovely hosts in Belém area: Priscilla and Gelderson. Thanks very much for looking after me!


Curing my sore feet
Pos: here
Loc: Punta de Pesqueiro
Acc: Gelderson’s Hotel

I had to stay inside all day, as I  could barelywalk. Fortunately my laptop decided to work for once, though I could not be online. No wifi here, no cell phone internet working any more (though the new chip worked fine yesterday). Slightly cut off from the world, but Gelderson managed to at least fix the cell phone internet at night back to working state. Thank you!

I could at least dive into my chart on the larger computer screen to get an overview over the maze of islands and channels to come. This will be some interesting navigation! Big tides around 4 m still, though no fat river currents (mostly) I could mark a few waypoints on my GPS to guide me where I plan to paddle. It may look different in reality though. Usually every night during my laptop updates I also have a look on my large screen chart and downloaded sat images to freshen up the idea where to paddle. No paper maps available yet until half way to Sao Luis. Then I will have at least those for additional overviews if the laptop keeps quitting. For now it works again in the cool a/c room…

I also was able to save all my pictures since Cayenne which were not uploaded yet on a memory stick, just in case on my visit to the public internet cafe tomorrow my own laptop quits working again.

Besides that, not much to do. Gelderson was busy with his own things and me being forced to stay inside was good for my feet. I rather would have loved to work online already what I need to do all the time to maintain a great website and to prepare the next leg being in a city! Well, this time all about my accommodation is fine, bad luck about no wifi.
See what I can get done tomorrow!

Great that your contact there is being so helpful with your needs. We do’nt really think about all that you do to keep us updated on your great adventure, and for that we thank you much. I know I personnaly very much enjoy reading all of your updates and look forward to seeing the pictures to bring it all to life.Hope your feet continue to heal well,I worry about them for you as well. I suppose thats just part of what you face, for all you’ve had to put them through in the past weeks of tromping through the mud and them staying wet constantly.Rest well.


I agree with Frances; getting a daily update is absolutely amazing. Just keep in mind, when Roald Amundsen made his famous expeditions, only 100 years ago, discovering the North-West Passage and the Southpole, he dissapeared for nearly two years each time and only then he could tour the USA and Europe delivering speeches and showing his pictures (and raising some money)!


Hang in there Freya. Rest those feet! Hope your laptop keeps working. Stay safe 🙂 Hugs!

Frances Price

You do have a great website, Freya, and it won’t hurt us to excitedly wait until you are able to upload pictures. Let those feet heal, and rest well.
