Photos: Manaus to Leticia

Friday, October 28th, 2005

Here is some photos from my Amazon boat trip from Manaus, Brasil to Leticia, Colombia also known as the three frontiers because it is a border town of Brasil, Peru, and Colombia.

Here is a photo of an exact copy of our boat. If I had taken the picture of ours I would still be in the jungle somewhere.

These were a box of chickens that were tied to the back of the boat. After every meal I would go back to see if they were still there. Apparently they were someones pets because they survived the trip.

We would stop at these little port towns and offload freight and passengers. There would always be a scramble to buy and sell stuff. These were some remote towns that were only accessible by boat.

Just our usual afternoon sunset. Thats Dominic on the right talking to a fellow Brazilian backpacker doing humanitiarian work. Notice the lack of females. Not good on a seven day boat trip.

A sunset to remember. Cruising down the Amazon. Check that off the life list.

The Amazon Jungle: Brazil

Monday, October 3rd, 2005

This is from the Jungle tour we took in Manaus.

A picture of the elusive pink dolphins. These were different than their salt water brothers in that they didnīt spend a lot of time on the surface. One gulp of air and they were gone. Trying to get a shot with a slow ass digital camera was a challenge.

Here is a Blue and Gold Macaw like I had in Kansas. My ex had me buy about $4000. in birds and crap. I did learn how to handle them which came in handy during my Amazon stay.

This was dinner time. The three guys on the right were the Swiss dudes. They were some truly laid back characters.

This tour was a little different than your normal eco tour. Our motto was, ĻSee nature, kill it, and eat it.Ļ
