From the Mountains to the Jungle

Hi everyone!
We returned to Ocongate yesterday after a great week in Nacion Q’eros. Today, we will be traveling by bus to Puerto Maldonado for one night before we are heading into the Amazon to work with an organization called Fauna Forever for a week. We will be doing night hikes, taking a boat ride to see birds, and learning about tribes in the Amazon amongst other adventures to experience this unique environment. We may not have consistent Internet access throughout our week there, but we will let you know when we get to Urubamba in the Sacred Valley for transference.
