Final day in the Amazon

Pisac, Peru
Pisac, Peru
We started the day saying goodbye to our new friends Phil & Jane with who we have shared our treks with over the previous 3 days. Adding to several small world experiences, it turns out both Phil & Steve have a common friend in the business community. We set off on a morning hike which took us to a giant ciebar tree with a natural arch in the base so large the pathway went right through it. These massive 400 year old trees are truly awe-inspring. As usual, our native guide Geraldo pointed out a number of plants that are used by indigenous peoples for food, medicines and an array of practical purposes. Geraldo has been great with the kids. Even though he does not speak English, he has built a bond with them and fashioned several little souvenirs from jungle plants. The morning concluded with a little fishing off the swim dock where both boys successfully caught small white piranha using a simple bamboo fishing pole and raw chicken. They then proceeded to cool off with a swim in the very same waters! After lunch and a siesta, we commenced our final outing at Sacha Lodge, more hiking and canoeing down narrow jungle streams. WHile it was all more of the same, one can't help but be impressed every time another monkey or exotic plant is seen. As we reflect on our few days here we come away somewhat changed. The jungle started out to be an inhospitable place - hot, damp, muddy and home to poison plants, bugs and reptiles. Yet, our anxieties have subsided as our guides have given us a more informed perspective of these risks and a much deeper appreciation for the wonders of this amazing place.
