week 5-befriending the caiman, seven voyages of sinbad

Week 5 - I befriend a giant man-eater

The rivers of Pantanal could be the most dangerous place on earth -- if you smell like tasty seafood. Since I didn't shower for a few days, I smelt somewhat like seafood (maybe not the tasty kind). That, naturally, attracted lots of nasty predators.

I was chased by a giant caiman who could swallow me whole, and a group of piranas who could torn me to pieces... But I was quick witted, so I fed the piranas to the caiman and left unscathed (and I took a shower later).
