On my last day in Brazil I experienced perhaps the greatest thrill yet: swimming with pink dolphins! (video clip) Later our group visited a native Indian hut and watched them dance. (video clip). Enjoy!

These photos are nice. What's next on the agenda? Someplace cold, perhaps?

I may be visiting Brasil some time in the near future. Not sure if Amazon is on the agenda, but we'll see.

JJ that is a real shame on being endangered

I love dolphins.  They are really smart, fun and playful, they are innately friendly with all other animals except fish and sharks in the oceans, I am amazed that south America has a river version, very unique and special, unlike all other continents. 

So long as the governments and human beings treat each other the way they do, what hope is there for the creatures we impact.

You are on a most enviable trip. Any chance to visit Bahia?


Nice Scenery, strange thing

JJ were those dolphins in fresh water?  The water didn't look like salt water/sea water but fresh water.  How's that possible, dolphins etc I thought need salt water to survive?
