Welcome to the jungle… Leticia…Colombia

The Amazon jungle has stunned me the minute I have seen it from the airplane. One hour of flying over the green carpet that you don’t see the end of it. My destination was Leticia a city that is surrounded by the Amazon jungle 1000 kilometers all around. BUT also the city on the border of the three countries. From my hostel there was a 5 minute walk to Brazil and 15 minute walk to Peru.

Hostel – Mahatu house is a little paradise on the earth. Couple of small houses, surrounded by 3 lakes, orchids, palm treas, lots of parrots, 2 dogs, a cat some, some herons, a pool, canoe to drive around the lakes…

The photos below are from my visit of a shaman. His home address is 7.5 kilometers out of Leticia. And than you have about 30 minute walk through the jungle to get to his place. But more about this experience next time…
