For those of us who have forgotten that the word rainforest means a lot of rain, the last few days have made this very clear. Since Randy wrote in the blog about lots of rain, we have had an increase in rain. In fact it has probably been raining continuously for the last 48 hours.
So yes, we are all wet but so far the spirit of adventure is holding strong and we are moving right along as per our plans.
Our Brazilian cyclists that are riding with us, tell us that there has not been so much rain in 70 years. Mata Atlantica rainforest in which we have been cycling is only 7% of what it used to be, but if the rain keeps falling the way it has, this area is sure to expand quickly.
I guess I am almost dry now, so it is time to get out there and make my way to camp.
