On the Amazon

Some highlights from our 2010 trip to the Brazilian Amazon (right after the jump)

A little under two weeks in the Amazon. Flew in directly to Manaus which is right at the meeting of the waters. (The Rio Negro and the Rio Solomes). We went up river to the Anavilhanas jungle lodge which is right in Brazil’s largest freshwater archipelago of river islands. From there we explored on foot and in canoes, caught piranha, swam with piranha and ate piranha, learned about the jungle from local guides, met the pink Boto dolphins and the beautiful people who live there. Could spend a lifetime there and still only skim the surface. One of the most beautiful places I have ever been fortunate enough to visit.
