Part II of an entry about our friends' kayaking trip in Amazonas in July.
We slept in hammocks and fell asleep each night and woke up each morning to the sounds of the Jungle.
The Urubu river is a black water river. Because of the acidic water mosquitoes were not a problem (I think I got one bite the entire time), but this also meant that the animal and plant life was not as diverse as on the Amazon river. We were lucky to spot three different types of monkeys, a pig, snakes, frogs, lizards, a multitude of birds, and catch a piranha.
The entire experience was magical- we would really recommend the adventure!
