15 April 2011 | Marau
Interesting sail upriver. Very pretty, passed fishermen in dugout canoes but few other boats apart from the small ferry.
Arrived Marau late afternoon and found market in progress, there was not much on display so we dashed around to get essentials only to discover that the reason there was not much on display was that they were setting up for tomorrow. Had an ice cool beer on the quay and watched procedings The giant fresco of Brasilian fauna was quite distinctive but in need of a bit of a repaint, it must have looked good at one time. The whole town had a faded charm, a revamp had been started but seemed to have lost momemtum.
