So after 17 days at sea, we entered the river into the port of Cabadelo, but we continued up the river to a place called Jacare, where we found a Marina. For the first few days we anchored off the Marina and some local restaurants and enjoyed the festivities everyday from the restaurants. Everyday at 16h00, the bands from all 4 restaurants would start playing loud.....I mean loud music, then at 17h00...everyday...they would have a guy dressed in white playing the Balero on his saxaphone, but not just playing, he would walk out from one of the 4 restaurants and get into a small boat, like canoe, and then the paddler would paddle this guy while he stands in the boat, up and down in front of the restaurants for about an hour. The restaurants are packed out with people every night, and then afterwards the bands would continue playing. In the week the bands stop at about 19h00 but on weekends till early hours of the morning, they definitely have spirit and enjoy their music, we enjoyed it as well.
