I am just putting this post on to see if anyone and verify something that I was told by a traveller returning from SA.
They told me that there had been a hijacking of a boat on the Amazon and people were actually taken hostage. I won't put the name of the boat on this post as there may not be any truth in the report.
Does anyone know if there was an incident like this and if so where and when.
We are planning our trip to SA in April 2010 and have included an Amazon cruise on our itinerary.
