Check out this fantastic blog post by someone who got to experience the beautiful Amazon rainforest. I have to admit I am beyond jealous that they got to go. The Amazon is so full of exotic animals and plants. It's so unique and must be preserved. I just hope I never come across a bird eating spider. Indeed a former partner of mine was Brazilian. She had a terrible fear of spiders. This is because when she was growing up, she had one of those giant bird eating spiders in her bedroom. It would give me NIGHTMARES FOREVER!!!!
