... corn plants, giant umbrella trees, and ever present purple vinca trees, looking a lot like the jungle I am familiar with. The plan is, we will make our way to the town of Algo Agrio, where we will be picking 3 more people up from the airport, along with our guide, then off to hook up with the canoe, a quick lunch, then arriving at the lodge at about 2 pm. Well, as so often happens in a third world country, it's a mater of " hurry up and wait." Dennis gets a couple ...
