Caranavi d. 3 december 2017 Peter Møllmann;
Today I went to the highlands near Caranavi. Arriving at the location we crossed a smal river and 20+ auroras flew up from their mudpudling.
I saw hundreds of auroras in a few hours. All very fresh, most common butterfly today, never saw so many. In the slo mo parts my sony xz premium smartphone take 960fps

Caranavi d. 6 december 2017; Peter Møllmann is calling from Caranavi and tells Gottfried Siebel and he is going to trip together, unfortunately it had rained all morning. I also spoke a little to Gottfried, I spoke English and he answered Spanish.
I hope they together will see some exciting butterflies out in the forest's deep gorges with small streams.
