Lower right - Reni Barrio, delightful english-speaking owner of Dantos Adventure and Jungle Accommodation, emptying a bongo of water using a local technique, before taking us to a geologically interesting area of the river near his property. To contact him, ask at Aguas Bravas on Ave. Rio Negro, No 32-2, plaza Romulo in Puerto Ayacucho
Upper Left - Marco and Luis walking on a granite plain overlooking the Orinoco river. On the other side of the river is the much feared country of Colombia.
Lower right - The low levels of the Orinoco during the dry season. It is during this time of year that fishing is especially easy as fish are trapped in small pools.
