Colombia has been a dream destination for me for many years, ever since I started importing fish from there in the late 1980’s. But traveling to Colombia back in those days, especially from the USA, was not a good idea. Times have changed. Colombia is a much safer place to travel and is poised to become one of the biggest destinations in the world for ecotourism. I fulfilled my dream in December 2016, and I have promised myself to go again… many times!
I was in Colombia for two weeks and visited to areas of the country. The llanos region in the headwaters of the Rio Meta and Rio Guaviare, near the city of Villavicencio one the edge of the easter slope of the Andes mountains. And the confluence region near the city of Puerto Inirida, where the Rio Inirida, Rio Guaviare and Rio Atabapo come together and join the mighty Rio Orinoco as it leaves the interior of Venezuela. I will present this trip is a series of videos, of which the first episode is presented here. I am not sure how many videos the whole trip will require, but I shot a LOT of footage.
The trip was sponsored by three companies that have been instrumental in the advancement of the aquarium hobby, and their contributions to this project are greatly appreciated:
Episode 1 will set the stage for the entire trip. My goal is to publish a new episode each week, probably on a Sunday. Each episode will be previewed here on the vlog site telling you some more detail about the episode, so here is a great place to view the series. But I also appreciate the sharing of this video on FaceBook and subscribing to the Ted Judy YouTube Channel. Enjoy…
