Right now I have probably 60 or so exotic bug bites (Amazonian bug bites!) and not a lot of time to write a detailed blog entry. HOWEVER, I will upload some photographs of my trip and write more about my wonderful experience at the environmentally sustainable Yachana Lodge soon.
A group of students in front of a sunset. We hiked to a lookout where we could see the Amazon jungle, volcanoes and the Napo River in the background.
We went bird watching and found some leaves that allowed us to ´blend in´with nature. From left, me, Sara Cullinan and Laura Carbone.
Juan and Abel were the leaders at Yachana Lodge. They were incredibly knowledgeable, hilarious and passionate about the environment.
