Vulture on the River

This picture was taken at the Amazon Ecopark in Brazil. The lodge here offers a few day trips that you can go do, as well as jungle walks led by a guide. In our experience, the ecopark also had a plethora of wildlife in the surrounding areas. Of course with nature there’s no guarantee that you’ll see something, but we had great luck here. We saw a few different varieties of monkeys, including the endangered Pied Tamarin, as well as two sloths, and a ton of birds including this really cool vulture. The Amazon is not the easiest place to spot animals, a lot of areas have such dense forest that it becomes difficult to see things, but the wide variety of bird life that can be spotted here is absolutely astonishing. If you’re up for the challenge of spotting some very cool wildlife this is a great area to visit!

This is a Yellow Necked Spurfowl, which are are native to Kenya, and can be seen in many of the parks in Kenya. I think these birds are really pretty, and I like seeing all the different birdlife in Kenya. This was taken in Buffalo Springs National Reserve, which is a really nice park, located really close to Shaba National park. You can visit both in one day; do a morning game drive in one park and an afternoon game drive in the other.

These works of art are graffiti pieces found in Berlin, Germany. These picture were taken from an above ground train we were on. Like London, Berlin is a good place to look for Graffiti in Europe. These pieces stuck out particularly, the two large birds (I believe) were done by a fairly prominent graffiti artist who has a few pieces in London, including the giant heron featured in the first art in the streets post. And the other piece looks like it could be Banksy or possibly Banksy inspired.
