Snaps from Benjamin Constant in the Brazilian Amazon
We are walking around on the narrow wooden walkways (high water season), taking a left here, a right there (not much else to do in Benjamin Constant), hoping the planks will hold, getting further away from the main streets, when we finally reach a dead-end, and two little Brazilian boys. I ask them if I can take a picture, and before long we are suddenly invited to go on a boat trip. “Would we like to cruise around and check out the neighborhoods over there for example”, they ask, pointing towards some other small houses a bit further ahead along the river. They start untying the boat before we have the time to tell them that we don’t have time, as we have to take the last ferry back to Tabatinga before we head back into Leticia and Colombia. What a shame, could have been a nice little adventure. Anyways, here’s some snaps from our few hours in the little town of Benjamin Constant.
