One Year Ago Project

We have been thinking back on our trip to South America last year at this time and we have so many marvelous memories!  So over the next month I'm going to share a few pictures of where we were exactly one year ago, day by day.

Day 1 - Miami to Manaus, Brazil

After an overbooked flight in Miami and a flight plan change for 5 of us on the tour, that involved overnighting to Sao Paulo (with Crystal sitting in first class!), we finally arrived in the Amazon jungle,  1000 miles west of the mouth of the river.  

We stayed at this lodge in the jungle - 

which looked like this as we arrived - 

and had several parrots to watch!  This guy was bothering the housekeeping staff so he had to move out to a big tree.  Some of the smaller ones loved to fly through the open air dining room and sit on the table as we ate!  

Tomorrow we go on a jungle walk and visit the monkeys - be sure to come along :))


  1. What brilliant colours - real joyous.

  2. What an adventure.

  3. Can you believe it was a year ago? I'm excited to see more of this trip and to enjoy the beautiful weather and colours. It's cold here in NY today. ;)

  4. I can't wait to see more pictures. I love the bird!

  5. Oh I would give anything to be in a warm, tropical place right now! Especially after this dump of snow and it's still snowing! What a wonderful experiences, memories, and adventures you had on this trip! One day.........
