This week’s sunset comes from Yasuni National Park, Ecuador!
While slowly making their way down the Rio Napo from Coca, Ecuador to Iquitos, Peru, Chelsea and Mandrew took a break in the small town of Nuevo Rocafuerte and, along with a couple new friends, tried to track someone willing to take them on a jungle adventure. After running into Roni, a local entrepreneur/guide, they set off by lancha (small, hand-built wooden boat) into the nearby Yasuni National Park where they spent three action-packed days searching for elusive pink river dolphins, birdwatching, hiking, piranha fishing, and drinking the local moonshine known as agua ardiente (burnt water). After setting up camp on their very own island in the lagoon Jatuncocha (“Large Lake” in the Quechua language), they took in the gorgeous sunset while cleaning the days’ catch.
