“Travel has a way of stretching the mind. The stretch comes not from travel’s immediate rewards, the inevitable myriad new sights, smells and sounds, but with experiencing firsthand how others do differently what we believed to be the right and only way.” Ralph Crawshaw

The Amazon Institute 2012 has stretched us all, providing us with new eyes to see the world.

    Would you recommend this place and experience to others?

      From Kim Smart:

      I recommend this place (Explorama Lodges near Iquitos, Peru) without question. It’s a safer way to experience the Amazon, with excellent guides, excellent views from the canopy walkway, excellent wildlife sightings. This experience is an Educator of Excellence Institute through the NC Museum of Natural Sciences, and I highly recommend these experiences to all North Carolina teachers.
