Swimming with piranhas is an OPTIONAL activity?

A travel blog entry by russellgibson

We had a quite an early start today, but this was OK. When there is no electricity, it always seems later than it actually is. We went to bed early and slept really well. In the jungle it is actually quite noisy, insects, nocturnal animals, bats, vermin making their calls and scurrying around. This noise is quite peaceful and Alison said she tried …

The Amazon

A travel blog entry by wanvigdot


... of the amazing Leaf Cutter Ants – and of course, Llyacko taught us what they do with the leaves and all about them. We had a super lunch of chicken with rice, avocados and a sauce of cocona fruit. A little like a small lemon, also acidic and very good.
