After a pleasant evening with your buddy Chip in Rio de Janeiro's nightlife, you find yourself
very unsure and hardly able to face the situation you are in.
Chip is the first to react and from there things take a surprising turn. The weather is not too bad.
The Clipper Amsterdam is waiting for you. The Douglas DC3 is very reliable. But how are reliable you?
Beagle Brazil (Part 2)
What is it you are so attracted to in Rio's Copacabana, the classy beach district, the big hotels? Or is there more? Anyway, this day also starts in Rio.
You got your briefing from "the company" yesterday afternoon already and instructions are as clear as a bell. Stay alert, be there for us.
We need your help, not only for the usual transport. There's more. Lost things, old things, very old things...
Your plane is the small very reliable - bush loving - Maule.
Beagle Galapagos Mission
The people at VPRO, the radio station organizing this world journey, are very worried about the fact they don't get any news from the people on the clipper "Stad Amsterdam" of late. The last tweets were published just before they were about to cross the equator for the second time in one day. Quite a happening and they were planning a big "crossing the line" party. That's more than 2 weeks ago now and the ship seems to have disappeared since. Will you be able to find the lost ship?
