Swimming With Dolphins

At Novo Airão, there's a riverside fish place where you can tie up and feed the pink dolphins that swim in the Rio Negro. You can swim here, too, without too much worrying about pirhanas — because the dolphins find pirhana very tasty indeed.

The dolphins are free to come and go as they like; five or six seemed inclined to play this morning. They like the free fish a lot, and don't mind a few people wandering about. The people don't seem to be much competition for the fish. Occasionally, a dolphin might give you a bump or a little nibble, just to remind you to behave.

Novo Airão has groceries and taxicycles and lots of political signage. And of course it has internet cafés. And there I was, too.

We have photos, too, of Linda swimming with the dolphins, but they're in Awe's camera. Hope they come out!
