My house with verandah in the Amazon Rainforest

Someone just reached my site with the query ‘house with verandah in the Amazon?’ After trawling through adverts by ‘you know who’ they found me.
My small three bedroomed lodge was built with a wide verandah. It was a place where we ate and worked and had long conversations and entertained and relaxed.

It was a place where I could sit in my rocking chair and birdwatch. It was a place to get out of the intense sun and hide from the fierce storms.
Most houses in the Amazon have a verandah. The houses can get claustrophobic and stuffy inside.

Protected by the thick grass roofs and positioned to catch any breeze they are the main living areas in the house.
