Ucayali River and Rio Dorado, 11/5/2019, Delfin II

  • Aboard the Delfin II
  • Amazon

Today the plants of the tropical rainforest were our focus, both for photography and exploration. We walked in forest that is normally flooded, only accessible by boat, for several months of the year. Sandro, one of our local naturalists, gave a presentation on the medicinal uses of the local flora.

Later in the afternoon, Javier spoke of, and gave a tasty presentation on, the local rainforest fruits which included palm fruits, brazil nuts, tagua nuts and wild mango. Our day ended with a late afternoon skiff ride that stayed out past sunset. We came home riding under a star-studded sky after a riverside search for caiman.
