Jan 23, 2018 - Delfin II
Our second full day of our expedition on the Upper Amazon started with a visit to the Amazon Natural Park. In this private reserve, the main attraction is a suspension bridge which is a state-of-the-art piece of engineering. The long bridge, approximately a quarter of a mile in length, allowed us to have the thrill and excitement to walk in the middle strata of the rainforest. We had a persistent rain that accompanied us the whole morning.
In the afternoon, weather was completely different. We had a sunny afternoon. After an introductory presentation about photography with our photo instructor Michael Nolan we went to explore Nauta Caño. This stream is covered with thick vegetation where our naturalists spotted several bird and mammal species. Three-toed sloths, a couple of squirrel monkey troops and the unusual sighting in this location of monk saki monkeys. Finally, late in the evening, just after dinner we had a short walk, this time at night. We were immersed in the forest night sounds and atmosphere in total darkness.
