So we just got back from the Amazon and it was amazing! We went on a couple hikes through the jungle, and went to the place that they filmed Motorcycle Diaries. We went on a midnight boat ride where they told us stories about how people have died in the Amazon, it was really scary. They told us this ledgend that if someone goes missing in the jungle and comes back fine, check their feet. If they have six toes on each foot it's not really them it's some kind of monster who has been recreated as your friend!! And our tour guide told us about people who have been killed by pumas, and anacondas, crazy stuff! We held monkeys, tucans, sloths, some even held an anaconda but I couldn't bring myself to!
We also swam in the Amazon river with pink dolphins! It was incredible!! We tired this drug called Ayawasca that clears out your system and is supposed to be a very spiritual experience.
