Silke & Bahram (Deutschland)

Es war 2013, aber immer noch in lebhafter Erinnerung.
Wir waren im Januar 2013 mit Javier im Manu, allerdings außerhalb des Nationalparks weil dort gerade hohe Wasserstände vorherrschten. Wir wir die einzigen Gäste und so hatten wir Rundumversorgung. Javier ist ein großartiger Artenkenner, der sich auch nicht mit dem begnügt, was er schon kennt, sondern ist immer begierig Neues zu entdecken und kennenzulernen. So konnten wir mit unserem weit gefächerten Interesse auch für Amphibien, Insekten und Spinnentiere (mein highlight Geißelskorpione) und anderes Getier auf unsere Kosten kommen. Unvergeßlich bleibt mir auch ein Fußballspiel mit den Jungs bei einem Zwischenhalt. Für Leute mit tiefergehendem biologischen Interesse gibt es niemand besseren als Javier. Ich freue mich auf ein Wiedersehen irgendwann...
