Army of Ants Eats Holes; “Stunning” Rio Jutai

Date: April 08, 2018
Approximate GPS Location: (4.61°S, 69.77°W)

Casey has recently endured bee stings, and trips and falls while crossing wet, "tangled" jungle, and then leafcutter ants invaded his camp at 2AM eating holes through hammocks, packs, bags and clothes. But he has finally made it to Rio Jutai, a small community which he refers to as "stunning". He is repairing, re-supplying and resting.
