More Amazonas memories… Life on stilts in Leticia. Anna 4 years ago More Amazonas memories... Life on stilts in Leticia. Share this: Where are we? We are the blue dot.. a small town called Leticia, one of the most remote towns in the world. Accessible only by air or riverboat, with no connecting roads. We are right at the point where Colombia borders Peru and the Brazilian state of Amazonas. The Amazon river runs through bisecting Colombia from Peru, and the Amazon rainforest surrounds us.May 29, 2018In "Photos"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.May 31, 2018In "Photos"New post on my blog! A day in Leticia The Colombian Amazon? ? I arrived in Leticia for my thirty second birthday. A corner where three countries meet, built on stilts around the magnificent Amazon river.? ?
