Brazil and Colombia have two towns that have joined together over a porous border. Motocycles and scooters zip between the two countries. I have never seen so many motorcycles at one time, no choppers though. Women wear very little which is good because itīs very hot. It rains everyday. The river is the lifeblood to these border towns.
Dad and I decided to find a tour for our last day together. After our 4th stop we found a canopy tour outside of Leticia, Colombia. We found ourselves harnessed up with gear standing beneath a massive 120 foot tree with a rope dangling down. Long story short- Dad said a curse word (2nd time in his life) during a moment of desperation, I pulled my right bicep, lots of laughing, lots of speed, lots of sweat, life flashed before dadīs eyes twice, more laughing, lots of yelling, and poisonous snakes.
