Sunshine & Butterflies
Amazon Adventure - 8 Day Ecuador
The environmental Shiripuno Lodge made of local material that grows in the rainforest was the place where we really got to know each other. Each spoken word traveled from room to room. We quickly learned that if it was private, don't say it.
During the rainforest hike, I was amazed how helpful everyone was as we trekked over the roller-coaster terrain and crossed rivers on fallen narrow, moss damp tree trunks. The forest is filled with poisonous plants and creatures, but it also abounds with nature's cures. The guide sprinkled lemon ants on my tongue to feel a tiny burst of citrus.
