River's Edge

South America

Waterfalls cascade into a lazy river. A mud path, embedded with animal footprints and leaves, hints at what's ahead. In the distance is the sound of a bird call, then a monkey chattering. Overhead, oropendola nests sway in the breeze. You're now entering the riverbanks of South America.
