Amazon rain forest 2 of 2
On our third night in the rain forest, we were treated to a night hike. That was hair raising realising that you were all alone in the pitch black jungle. A particular moment that had to stand out was when we spied some spiders less than a metre away and then were told to turn off ALL lights so as not to scare them. Instead, we scared ourselves.
As we survived this, it was followed the next morning by a visit to a roost for bird of paradise. Just in case this wasn’t enough adventure for us, the last adventure was some tubing on the river. This was something that we were not to forget. Although, sitting as I was on the boat to document that expedition, I was disappointed that annoying humans in the water did not attract a crocodile, which might attract puma’s who love to eat crocodiles. So all this trip was for nothing.
Yet, I guess there is always next time.
This is a male tarantula
This is the female tarantula
The chicken bird. It is as ungainly as it looks
Even in the next day, it seemed that memories of our many legged friends remained
At 5am, we went to visit the parakeet roost
And this is them all taking wing
Our guide searching for more
Such as this condor
Vultures eating a sting ray on the floor
Taking off because annoyed humans ran at them
Some other visitors on the river
Another mode of transport
Some were less then enthused
Some bored, some not
Although maybe it just took a bit of warming up
Before people got excited
While coasting down the rapids with this type of scenery, what’s not to like?
Even when the going becomes a bit rougher
People couldn’t help
Even if at the end
It was over
Rather too fast
The final bon fire to say goodbye
Early in the morning, we took to our boat to being the long journey back
And some other jungle inhabitants
Showed up to say their goodbyes
A great trip!
