John & Lois are traveling to Brazil! We are flying out of Traverse City on November 1, with stops in Chicago and Miami, and plan to return on November 24. Our itinerary includes Rio de Janeiro, the Pantanal (Cuiaba is the nearest town), Iguazu Falls (from both the Brazilian and the Argentinian sides) and finally Manaus. From there we'll embark on a six night cruise on the Rio Negro and Amazon. We arranged the trip through a travel company called Vaya Adventures. They organized our Peru/Ecuador trip five years ago, and we were happy with the service and accommodations. Stay tuned!
