Back on the Amazon, floating towards the tri-border
Our knife collection! A couple of machetes for contruction and exploring the jungle and then some smaller knifes for kitchen and fishing. The two huge white-handled knifes were Peycho and Mishas knifes, more for fun. Looks dramatic, but hey, this is the accumulated knifes among 3 guys.

Cruising along, keeping our distance to the shore is easy with the help of an engine.
Something magical about this shot, I think

We were anchored here to a grounded old rusty ferry, while attempting to sort out the paper-work for our raft
Entering Brazil! Pirates or not, here we come…
Walking around in the untouched, deep, dense wall of vegetation with a machete and a camera, was my favourite past-time.
Peycho is proudly showing his daily miracle: bread. Left to rise for a couple of hours and then slow-cooked on low heat in this iron-cast pot over the fire
Lovely fresh bread, everyday in the wilderness!
Our raft and our boat. Due to the massive amount of mosquitoes, we had sown a huge box of a mosquito net that we all could sit inside. In the photo, it is the blue thing that is “rolled up” in the front of the raft
Notice the immense expanse of the Amazon river, appearing more like a sea.
Visited by the Tikuna people, an indigenous tribe, living on the Amazon shore, near the Brazil-Peru border.

Anchored for the night.
Those stunning Amazon sunset!
Loved photographing the dragonflies, its such an amazing insect.
Peycho and Henrik went on a 3 day expedition up the Jutai river, exploring tiny little side-streams, overgrown waters and flooded forest
