We are in a group of 9 people, some travellers on massive r-t-w tours and some on short hols.
Friday night´s entertainment is a night out on the town, however being 400 miles deep in the amazon jungle, its a night of walking through the pitch black forest observing all the cool nocturnal animals. Under our sleeping area lives about 10 tarantulas in small holes.
They spin webs around the hole and when they feel the web moving they run out and pounce. Our guide, Enrique, pokes the web and they all pounce out on us looking menacingly huge, jaws salivating at the prospect of fresh human blood. It was brilliant.
Walking into the jungle, we had bats flying around our heads.
On leaves you could find huge stick insects,
Sleeping in mosi-net, with some loud jungle screetches all night to lull us to sleep.
