Bolivia and the Amazon

Took my daughter Elizabeth to Peru and we also came here to the Amazon jungle near Bolivia. Noisy noisy!!

You will not sleep beyond 4am as the jungle wakes up then. The noise is insane.

Here we set off up the Rio Madre de Dias. The Mother of God River.

Our destination was the Macaw Clay Lick. This is where the macaw parrots come and lick the clay to neutralize the toxins in the Brazil nuts they eat.
