Tooting around in a pedicab is the best and driest way to tour Parintins. They are all over and used as regular taxis unlike most cities where they are mainly used by tourists.
Some fellow passengers have been moaning about the rain the last couple of days. I wonder what they expected in a rain forest.
The town was quite interesting and different than what I have seen before. I don’t think there are a lot of zoning ordinances here. Some houses seem just like private small residences and then the neighbor has an open area selling whatever he chooses.
Even the art is different. So much is three dimensional relief type art.
