Martin swam the final 29 km of the Peruvian Amazon and made a triumphant entrance into Brazil today.
The team received a rock star welcome at De Tabatinga Complexo Turistico by a mob of Martin Strel fans that’d been following the trip since day one. The mayor brought out his entourage of salsa dancers and presented Martin with the key to the city. We said goodbye to the Peruvians aboard the Cielito Lindo and moved onto the M.S. Cassiquari. Martin will continue swimming tomorrow morning after clearing customs. Brazil has already instilled a refreshing new energy to Martin’s weary team.
