    Jungle: Bring some drinks, music, and a good flashlight

    A game of chess in the jungle

    Once the sun goes down, and you've taken your jungle night walk, there's not much to do to pass the time. If you can bring a small stereo you will be a very popular person. If you bring a couple bottles of alcohol you will be immortalized as a hero of the jungle. If you're more the thinking type, a travel chess set and some playing cards are always fun diversions that don't take up much space.

    The Jungle: Searching for Caimans

    after the sunset, time for Caiman spotting

    It was a great experience to go looking for Caimans.

    We all had to look at the riverbanks, in between the branches of the mangroves.

    All the time we searched with our flashlight in the bush.

    You can easily spot those Caiman, because when you light on them, you see two very, very red eyes, oooch scary.

    We did see one from very near; unfortunately I have no picture of it. But I still have some hope as one of the Dutch girls in our boat made a picture, and maybe I can get a copy of this picture (whenever it worked out to make this picture in quite difficult circumstances)

    Only one negative point, because of the lighting with your flashlight in the dark, you were surrounded by hundreds, maybe by thousands of small insects and mosquitoes.
    It was not so nice to have such a swarm close to your face.

    Dress Code: a shirt with long sleves because of the insects. A scarf is very handy to cover your face partly, to avoid incoming insects.
