Missing the Amazon!

I missing Mama Amazon so much right now!! This was me in the jungle carving my very own flecha (spear), it took me days to finish it! It was made from the wood of a fallen wacrapona tree, the hardest wood in the jungle, and the traditional material for a spear…. This tree is also home to suri, a tasty little grub worm that’s eaten fresh in the jungle, but also served up grilled on a stick in nearby towns! Yum yum! Being in the Amazon Jungle was such an amazing experience, I really didn’t want to leave! I can not wait to get back to that funny little town Iquitos, and from there see much more of the magical selva!
