Exploring The Amazons (Part One)

This time, I went on my own, in a river boat cruise to the Amazon. My first experiences in Peru had not deterred me from wanting to explore these strange waters. The first thing in my mind were the mythical piranha. It turns out they were not as terrifying as I thought they were. Different species of piranhas exist and it just so happens I scheduled my trip when the dangerous ones were not in season. And so the trip became a way to clear up a lot of the myths I knew about the Amazon and to discover the real beauty that inhabits within it.
