Flight to Leticia on17 April 2007
On April 17 the four of us (Hilbert, his son Hilbert-Jan, Boudewijn and myself) departed for Leticia. From the airplane we had a beautiful view on the rivers and forests below us. We saw the large Rio Caqueta paralleled by the much smaller and stronger meandering Rio Canuinari. From the shadows the clouds casted on the forest surface it was clear that the mid-day sun was standing in the north! Nearing Leticia we saw signs of deforestation.
