Tuesday, November 4, Election Day in the USA

Wednesday, November 5, Crossing the Equater, Passing Macapa, Brazil, Cruising the Amazon

We reach the mouth of the Amazon late on Tuesday.

We anchor off of Macapa, Brazil Wednesday morning so the Brazilian authorities can come aboard and give clearance for sailing.

We spot a small African Queen-type boat.



We crossed the Equator at 6:10 this morning, but we have a crossing celebration in the afternoon.



We're surprised at the number of small houses along the river banks.

This is the Amazon rainforest!
