Rurrenabaque, Bolivia - An Amazon rainforest town!

An 18hr bumpy, dusty, rather upright bus ride along 'The Death Road' - not an experience I want to ever repeat! But Ruurenabaque was worth it thank goodness:)

sunny 40 °C

Me making friends with a Macaw on the bus - he took a shining to me and was ruffling his feathers, cooing and talking - he just bit Josh and Yoni, LOL!

After the worst bus journey of South America on the way to Rurrenabaque, I cringed at the thought of another one of the same, but the only other option was to fly.........so bussing it we did, and it actually was ok - a huge improvement :) Now time for the dentist in La Paz!
