The Amazon Rainforest - A Room With a View

Hope you aren't afraid of heights, cuz if you are the view from the top of a 40-meter high canopy observation tower might make your knees wobble a little. But from this height, you will definitely get an incredible view of the Amazon.

The Amazon Rainforest - The Adventure Begins

Your tour guides are a naturalist and a local guide so don't be afraid to ask lots of questions. Three meals a day are included in your trip, as well as all transportation, mosquito nets and rubber boots in case it's muddy. On the first day of your adventure to Panacocha, you will take a canoe ride from Coca along the river Napo to the Panacocha Lodge so be prepared to work those arm muscles. Actually, the canoe is motor powered so relax during the ride and keep an eye out for wildlife. Once you've reached the lodge, you'll hike through forest surrounded by lakes, rivers and streams. The time to use your arm muscles comes when you paddle through a maze of lagoons. Take some time out to swim or fish for piranhas. In the evenings, be on the lookout for caimans, a relative of alligators.

Saying Goodbye to the Amazon Rainforest

As you leave behind wild frontier, heading towards civilization you may have an opportunity to visit a local shaman in a Quichua community. Some locals believe the shaman can cure all illnesses by working with spirits and using something we would call magic.

Best Part About Camping in the Bush?

  • The freaky noises at night time.
  • All the wildlife you see.
  • Not having to shower for a while.
  • Marshmallows that fall into the fire.

I found the greatest riddle ever (credits to Ted-Ed), and I want to see if anyone can solve it without looking up the answer. THE RIDDLE OF THE ALIEN OVERLORDS. You and your team have crashed-landed on an ancient planet. The only way off is to appease its three alien overlords, TEE, EFF, and ARR, by giving them the correct artifacts. Unfortunately, you don't know who is who. From an inscription, you learn that you may ask three yes or no questions, each addresses to any one lord. Tee's answers are always true. Eff's answers are always false.  And Arr's answers are random. But, there's a problem. You've deciphered the language enough to ask any question, but you don't know which of the two words 'ozo' and 'ulu' means yes, and which means no. How can you still figure out which alien is which?

Fear: The Emotion of Death   You can't see me, But I'm there. I'm in your tears, I'm everywhere. I stalk you in your shadow, So stealthy and no slack. I'm made of dark matter, You better watch your back. You can hear me, I'm your beating heart. Inside is emptiness, Tearing you apart. You shiver and shake, At the sound of my name. I engulf you, drown you, Surround you with shame.   I've seen destruction, More than anyone. I'm darker than, The world with no sun. The agony arises, There's so much red. Most of it coming, From the dead. I become your shadow, I'm a terrible sight. And when you see me, You're frozen with fright. I'll grab you by your neck, You'll be thrashing around. You're crying, shrieking, Until there's no sound.   I feel so sad, So empty, so. . . Alone. So you'll feel the same, You'll be on your own. And as long as you are with me, At the point of no return. You will go crazy. You'll crash and burn.   Then you understand, With your slowing of breath. That I am Fear, The Emotion of Death.
