I took a bus from Quito to Lago Agrio.  The Putamayo Bus was great.  The bus goes through the Andes and was one of the most scenic roads I have ever been on.  I love the Andes.  There were 200 meter water falls and steep cliffs all around.

Lago Agrio is a seedy town about 30 km from Columbia.  The town is bustling with dirt streets and brick sidewalks.  Hotel DīMario is very nice with cable TV, air conditioning, a pool, billiards table, private baths, and hot showers.  It is much hotter and more humid here than in Quito.  I fear I will lose a lot of weight during the next week.

Tomorrow I will start a 6 day trip into the Amazon Jungle.  I will be travelling via motorized canoe through Cuyabeno National Reserve.  I hope to see a lot of wildlife (fresh water dolphins, pirhana, anacondas, monkeys, birds, etc.).  I was told the guide speaks English.  Otherwise, it will be a long trip for me.  If you donīt hear from my by December 21, then send someone into the jungle to look for me.
