The jungle tour was simply amazing. Our guides were excellent and were great at locating and spotting the local wildlife which included several different types of monkeys, sloths, birds, grey and pink dolphins, eagles, alligators, and everything but an Anaconda snake. At one point during the trip on one of our canoe excursions, I asked to go for a quick swim in one of the flooded areas that formed a lake..
From here, I need to catch up with my friends from Lima. They are in Manaus Brazil for Carnival and if I want to get there in time, I will need to suck up the cost of a flight. I donīt have time for the 4 day boat journey downriver. The jungle experience was awesome and Iīll miss having Martha around to hang out with. But Brazil is the next country and this means a new language (Portuguese) and a country almost the same size as the continental United States. How I will cover the 5th largest country in the world remains a mystery but iīm ready to go....check out the pix, there are plenty.
