But the prize that really got me was a trip to the Amazon for peacock bass. The Amazon! Not for nothing, but this is not an ideal place for Susie Homemaker, hubby, and the kids, especially if they don't give a crap about fishing. Little Johnny might find more than a hermit crab when he starts lifting rocks in the jungle. How far is the nearest hospital? Plus, it would be just my luck that I'd book a week down there, my dream trip, and that crew shows up, turning serenity and desolation into Chuck E. Cheese.
