The Amazon is easily one of the most special, beautiful places we have on this incredible planet. Today we set sail.. errr.. oar.. and spent 9 hours exploring the rivers, lakes, and flooding-season watery jungles of the Colombian Amazonas. A life dream come true, one of the most magical experiences of my lifetime. Many, many, more photos to come. ??
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.
