More transcription of my handwritten journal! ------ Writing by flashlight in the tent tonight, so I won't write much. We're sleeping on a sort of camping platform in the jungle. Today we got on a boat in Atalaya and were on the Rio Madre de Dios for almost the whole day. It was a surprisingly chilly ride, considering we are in the tropical rain forest. It was very windy and we were frequently sprayed with water as we went over the rapids. We saw a lot ...
