    The mighty Amazon

    November 30, 2016 in Brazil ⋅ 🌙 28 °C

    After plenty of beaches it was time to see some of the mighty forest in Brazil. We spent almost a week in Manaus, from where we headed four days into the jungle. On the way we passed by the meeting of the Rio Negro and the Amazon river. The jungle lodge was right at the river where we saw plenty of small dolphins, caymans and spiders. We did several hikes in the jungle and daily excursions by boat. Here, we learned how to survive by fishing piranhas, by setting up our hammocks for one night in the deep jungle and by eating a catepillar that tasted like jelly coconut :) Although we didn't see any bigger animals like a sloth, a snake or a jaguar it was a great experiences and the huge trees are very impressive. Now we are heading down south to a more concrete jungle!Read more
