Real briefly, my name is Austen Weymueller. I’m a new volunteer at the Arajuno Jungle Lodge, and will be there for the next month, working on various projects both at the lodge and in the surrounding area. Figured I might as well introduce myself, since I’ll be keeping the blog updated for the next while.
This place is stunning, and it’s really quite unbelievable that I wake up every morning in the Amazon, and I eat my breakfast in the company of a monkey (actually, I spend half the time guarding my food from said monkey, rather than eating, but what does that matter when you’re in the Amazon eating with a monkey?).
