Blog space, jungle time

Friday, October 12th, 2007

Dear readers,

As you know, blogs are a way to keep current of events.  At Arajuno Jungle Lodge, we are hoping to have Internet service sometime soon.  There are several new Cellphone towers up in the area, but no equipment has been installed to make them work.  So, I o for any delays in answering to comments at the AJL blog site.  As most of you know, I attempt to get out of the jungle at least twice a week, usually Tuesdays and Fridays to answer any and all mail, pick up more beer and ice and food.  So, this will be a sort of slow blogging process until we have access to Internet at AJL.  That will be the big news from AJL  Then I will only have to come out of the jungle when I run out of beer and ice.  Ice lasts usually 4 days for me, so I figure I can limit my entrance to the town of Tena to once a week by then!  In any case, thanks to Doug Henderson who has put this blog site on my web.  We are ready and waiting for his photography group to arrive in a couple of weeks.  Until then, I look forward to hearing from you and will begin to update everyone as to the progress of our conservation work and the ecotourism business at AJL.

Saludos,

Tom

The Arajuno Jungle Blog:

Monday, October 8th, 2007

The Arajuno Jungle Blog is at last up and running. And, in spite of the way it sounds, the Arajuno Jungle Blog is neither the latest dance craze nor a tropical disease; it’s your place on the web to keep up with the latest news about what’s happening at Tom Larson’s Arajuno Jungle Lodge. This is our first post so check back often. It’s going to be good.

This month we’ve got two large groups back to back, and then later in the month (Oct 28)we’re going to be host to photographer Douglas Henderson’s (www.douglashenderson.com) Ecuador Photo Safari. He’s bringing 11 photographers deep into the heart of the Ecuadorian Jungle for the photo op of a lifetime. For information on his trip, click the Ecuador Photo Safari link on his site, and as his trip progress, read his and his group’s impressions on his blog and see the group’s images on Doug’s site.
