Life on the Rio Amazonas. Leticia I've found to be a vibrant and interesting small town. Quite different from anything I'd expected. Homes teeter on stilts along the river banks and most resident's livelihood depends on small, wooden long boats.- for getting around, working as a water taxi, or bringing fruits and other goods in from neighbouring Brazil and Peru. It's a melting pot of the 3 cultures and every July all three bisecting countries meet together to share their food, dress, dance, and culture in a huge celebration of Amazonian diversity. I find this town like nowhere else on Earth.
