..There’s no cats in the yard, but the place is pretty great. Juan and I have been staying at TerrAmor (http://terramor.com.br), with newfound friends. We’ve got a cute little casa all to ourselves, overlooking wild jungle and Lago Verde, which sources it’s water from the connected Rio Tapajos (which in turn is connected to the greater Amazon).

I’ve been loving the secluded beach that is accessed through a 1km walk through the jungle. I go down almost every day to swim, often wondering what snakes or never-before-discovered prehistorical sea creatures might be lurking beneath me.
