    ah ok!
    I've got a mate that take the ferry from leticia to "can't remember the name" and he told me that it was a bit dodgy as he wasn't even sure of the departure date, just showed up and jumped in the next boat... Found it funny that he had to buy his own hamoc aswell haha
    I didn't knew that it was possible to load a motorcycle inside.

    following thru your instagram and waiting for more pics!

    That's cool as hell man. What's your next stop - you going to continue heading west? Looks like there's a highway that heads to Nauta? Then back on a boat to continue the journey west?

    Amazing pics, odd to see stuff in English on the menu - wouldn't have expected that in the middle of the Amazon. Louisiana dirty rice...crazy.

    Keep 'em coming :thumb
