One benefit of the slow trip from Pebas to Brillo Nuevo was that I spent most of the trip watching the water (hoping to get a good look at a river dolphin - no luck), the forest on the banks and the sky above. I was rewarded with some nice shots of various birds - an Amazon kingfisher with a fish he/she had just caught, a hawk (possibly an immature bicolored hawk), a turkey or black vulture framed in some clouds, and a Southern lapwing. Also saw parrots, swifts, and a slate colored insect eating bird with rust and white bottom that I couldn't ID even after looking through my Birds of Peru book three times.

While I have formed some nice friendships with fellow vendors at many events, this festival is special because I have been welcomed as a sort of associate member of Painkiller Ridge - one of the longstanding groups of friends who set up camp together.  I didn't know exactly where they would be, but it didn't take long to find them at night because the large Peace sign light that adorned their main meeting area was an infallible beacon. It felt wonderful to be greeted like an old friend after a hiatus of 3 years during the pandemic.
