Another shot of that lichen I posted some days ago. I was after the darker background.

Ship tours

Since I returned to work in the health field, I haven't had much time to receive visitors at Bosque Santa Lucia. Most tours are those of passengers from the cruise ships, for example, the Royal Princess. Grand Amazon in Manaus is the operator for this ship when it comes to Santarem. The owners are quite meticulous in planning and logistics, never forgetting a detail, including medical emergencies. In the attached image, two nurses contracted by the operator, along with the bus drivers.
