      Possible corrections:
      Serra da Gramma > [Serra da Grama]

      Thank you, Pixel! We made the change two of your suggestions and added "[sic]" next to Serra da Gramma, to show that this was the text in the original description, but that we know it's spelled incorrectly. We left "jungly" because it's what Chase wrote in her caption and we can't assume she meant "jungle". It's possible she wanted to change "jungle" into an adjective, so added replaced "e" with "y".

      >> It's possible she wanted to change "jungle" into an adjective...

      Yes -- absolutely!  I didn't even recognize "jungly" as a word until you "spelled it out" for me!
