19 August – Hoatzins and Capybaras

Breakfast at the “Hoatzin Picnic Café”.

Cabin staff demonstrated how they made the towel animals.

In the afternoon we went swiming in the Yanayacu Lagoon with piranha fingerlings and dolphins.  Some claimed that the fish nipped, some claimed that they had a nice manicure – I didn’t feel a thing.

On the way back to the boat we saw a capybara family on the river bank, and they stood and watched us for long enough to take many, many photos.
