Everyone found a place to hang up their hammock. Over 60 people were on the boat.
The next morning we stopped for a swim and many people enjoyed a jump into the river.
With a warm welcome by the local kids we found our way to the first base camp along the beach. The first and most important thing to do was to find a place for the hammock and get organised. We stayed 2 nights at this lovely place and had time to acclimatise and get to know each other.
A day before the race we were informed about the local dangerous animals like snakes and spiders and we had our kit check done.
I was not afraid at all just nervous about how to handle my energy and pace throughout the day. Well, just snakes I don’t really want to meet by accident. So I decided to make some new friends with the local one they caught that day.
Excited about the first day I went to bed early and hoped that I would have a good night sleep with all the new noises around me.
Enjoying the day before the race… mmmmmh so refreshing!
