The banks of the Amazon

Having failed to make it to the Amazon Basin in Bolivia, Peru, and Ecuador,  Columbia was my last chance before leaving South America. To this end I flew from the coast down to Leticia at the bottom tip of Columbia.

It is a very cool little town where everyone gets around on scooters and it is only accessible to the rest of Columbia via air. From Leticia it´s possible to cross into Brazil without going through a border checkpoint and from the banks of the Amazon river you look over into Peru. It´s pretty mad. The chap who arranged my tour said that on weekends all the young Columbians cross over to Brazil to party because the beer is better and women easier!

I’m writing an article on my time in the jungle so I will post this when it  is published. In the meantime check out these pictures:
