Amazonas

Two years ago, I traveled to the Brazilian Amazon.


It was there I experienced a few firsts…

First ride in a sea plane.
(Water landings = awesome!)

First spider monkey sighting.

First tarantula-in-the-wild sighting.
(Note: photo is blurry because the person taking it – might have been me – was a bit startled, a little frightened, and maybe nearly capsized her canoe.)  

First Brazilian sunset.

First Victoria amazonica.
(ie ginormous Amazon lily pad)

First viewing of the Meeting of the Waters,
where the amply named Rio Negro meets the sandy-colored Rio Solimões.

Rainforest adventurer? What was your Amazonian first?
(Keep it clean, people.)
