Trip Pictures

This is a continuation to the previous post...

One of my Dad's brothers which we visited lives in the city of Corumba. It is a beautiful historic town on the edge of the Pantanal - considered one of the world's most largest ecological "paradise". We were just at the tip of this immense wetland, and were able to see several different varieties of animals: the toucan and other lovely birds, capybaras, caiman, emus, and tapir, not counting the picturesque scenes of trees and flowers of all sorts.

Here is a flock of Tuiuiu birds:


The Paraguay river runs by Corumba. We saw some very nice tour boats.


A picture of the city as we looked up from the river port.


The Cristo Rei. This staute stands on a hill that overlooks the city.


The gorgeous view from the staute - you can see the city and beyond it, the beggining of the Pantanal floodplains.


Some of the Pantanal creatures:-)


A bunch of Duartes: Jed, Jana, Dad and his brother and wife with some grandkids.
