Every night is a party here. It's 10:00pm and we are sitting at the most famous Tacacá stand in all of Belem. After this we listened to live music until the wee hours.

Tacacá is a soup common to Northern Brazil. It is made with jambú which contains a analgesic compound called spilanthol, and tucupi (a broth made with wild cassava), as well as dry shrimps and very spicy small yellow peppers. It is best served extremely hot and it's eaten with just a toothpick. The jambú helps to numb your mouth and throat making it easier to tolerate the hot peppers.

That's a river behind us, not an ocean. It's gets 2-4' surf when the wind and tide are right. We are being tough! SURF TEAM CAOH!
