Hundreds of thousands.. if not millions.. of parakeets come into roost from the surrounding jungles into this park every night at sunset.Nobody knows why they do it, when they have an endless expanse of jungle in which to sleep.. but yet, they do. And It's impressive, overwhelmingly loud and unimaginably awesome.
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.
Surreal and amazing way to spend my birthday. Views from the treehouse bed, many stories high in the treetops of the Amazon, with not another person or building in sight. Just us, and a small army of lovely little bats roosting in the eaves. So many sounds, creatures, and amazing nature. Also (surprisingly) even a little phone signal here and there to share my experience.
