Last Day On The River-5-72.jpgOur Las Day In Madidi National Park — Images by kenne

The balsa wood rafts are pulled onto land and are left for anyone who might want them. Most of the supplies and camping equipment is removed and temporarily stored in the bush to make room for all of us to travel downriver to Rurrenabaque by mid-day. Pedro’s uncle will be left behind but will be picked up later. 

There is still much to do and see before catching our late afternoon flight back to La Paz.

‘Tis Nature’s law
That none, the meanest of created things,
Of forms created the most vile and brute,
The dullest or most noxious, should exist
Divorced from good—a spirit and pulse of good,
A life and soul to every mode of being
Inseparably linked. 
— William Wordsworth

 

 

Rurrenabaque, Gateway to Madidi National Park   2 comments

Rurrenabaque-72.jpgDeboarding the plane from La Paz to Rurrenabaque where we spent the night. 

Rurrenrabaque-IMG_4556-72.jpgOriginally we were scheduled on a morning flight allowing time for us to drive 60 miles into Madidi National Park to an indigenous community where we would start our river journey on the Tuichi River. The later fight caused the drive into Madidi to be delayed to the next day.

Rurrenrabaque-IMG_4557-72After deboarding, we were shuttled to the nearby terminal.

Rurrenrabaque-IMG_4558-72.jpgConstruction equipment and a billboard were signs a new much larger terminal was under construction.
