Prinsendam Postcards from Manaus, Brazil

**Note: We’re happy to report that Chief Engineer Jaap Wisse has briefly come out of retirement to go back on board Prinsendam for a little while.

During Prinsendam’s call at Manaus, Brazil, we decided to do some bike exploring on our own. Here are some scenes from our trip.

Together with IT officer Jose Urrutia, we drove over the Ponte Rio Negro on a steaming hot day during our stop in Manaus, Brazil.
