As you may have guessed from the last post, I am having Internet issues. Plus my iPad sometimes changes what I’ve written and I post before I notice those incorrect modifications. But I digress.
We spent the last three nights at the Casa del Suizo on the Napa River, in the Amazon basin. After traveling from Quito for a good part of the day on a bus, we made the last leg of the trip in a dugout canoe, with a power motor on the back. This was far faster than a St. Martin dinghy ride!
Our hotel was the perfect mix of rustic and luxury. We were up high enough to guarantee a panoramic view, with all of the important creature comforts ( bar, pool, shower), but with ceiling fans instead of AC, transportation solely by those motorized canoes, and no Internet access.
We leave for the Galapagos tomorrow, so here are some Amazon visuals…our trek through the jungle — wearing boots thoughtfully supplied by the hotel and our visit to an animal rescue center.
There’s more, but I won’t bore you with too many details. At least not yet.
