Episode 8 - Life in the Bolivian Jungle Volunteering with Etta Projects

Episode 8 is all about our time living in the Bolivian jungle. We spent 9 weeks, from the end of August to the end of October 2018, volunteering with a non-governmental organization called Etta Projects. We discuss the projects we worked on, people we met, and some fun adventures along the way. Did we mention that the insects are huge in the jungle and we literally saw a spider crossing the road?! Also, stay tuned for recordings of birds, cicadas, and monkeys at the end of the episode - you'll actually feel like you were in the jungle with us! We’ve posted photos from the adventure below!
