Amazonas is one of the 32 departments of Colombia and is located in the southern part of the country. The capital of this department is the city of Leticia.
The department is called Amazonas because it is located in the Amazon Rain Forest.

I want to share these beautiful pictures of Amazonas that were taken by Monica, one of my best friends, who recently visited the area. Thank you Monica!

Thnak you for sharing these beautiful photos. I get so curious about amazonas, it looks like a heavenly place. Especially the bridge takes my attention. I’ve seen such bridges in many movies and it must be exciting to pass over it.

Happy New Year to you, your family and friends.

Looks wonderful,not how I expected the amazon to look like. With lilly pads, and those houses on stilts, looks asian rather than south american…
