Palm fronds drifted past the boat as our ferryman, known only as El Gato to me, guided us gently around mini-whirlpools in the brown river. El Gato hummed to himself, the only noise audible over the water’s rush. We drifted down the winding river, advancing deeper into the Amazon Rainforest.

Nothing revives me after a rough day as much as sitting in a warm shower and feeling the water patter on my back. As a kid, I used to complain that I had a February birthday because all I wanted to do for my birthday was have a pool party.
