    A wonderfully relaxing BiB (bliss in business) flight - der update bid hat sich gelohnt!

    515 left for lima airport to fly to Iquitos. Early morning and long drive to the airport. Not many people awake. The flight checkin was all handled by guides so was easy. The flight to Iquitos was relatively short except for a stopover in a small town callled Pullcalpa and we couldnt leave our seats. The boat guides met us and handled oue luggage, then gave eveyone a bottle of water as we got on our shot bus. They took us straight to a Manatee preserve. Just as it sounds. It is rehab for release into the wild. Look like turtles as babies and mutants as adults! Somehow adorable though. Had a chance to feed them. They lòoked like something out of a syfy movie when they ate but it was oddly adorable! Then we had a 2.5 HR bus ride to Nauta, to meet the boat. The guides tried to educate us on the ride but needed a microphone. We couldn't hear in the back. Everyone I saw was sleeping for the most part. I ad to close the curtain since the sun was straight on my face but not before I got sunburned! I was just too tired to close it earlier. When we got to Nauta and off the boat the first thing I Noticed was the smell! And I had to wear a life vest that stank like that smell as we took a skiff to the Amatista. The boat accomodations are not for anyone whose standards are above motel 6. (Best to avoid cabin 101!) Keep in mind It's an adventure cruise on an old boat! Lunch on the boat was good, and at 4, we took our first jaunt on the river. Saw sloths right away! Love those! Also a hawk, someone said a monkey, other birds I don't remember... No daylight savings time in Peru so it was pretty much darkt by the time we got back to the boat at 1830. Then they had AWESOME local music before dinner up on the observation deck! It was 3 guys from the kitchen (I call them the Peruvian mariachi band) and they rocked all 9 planets!Read more

    San Jorge

    June 24, 2015 in Peru ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

    Pirhana fishing. Sticks and fishing wire, very effective! Mine had to be thrown back because it was too small, but most caught a couple each! Then, Finally a hike in the forest! Had a local guide as well as our own. Local guide would disappear and show back up with things like anaconda and poison frogs. The was also the snake that had power to ward off other snakes if you were marked by it. So the whole group basically got spanked with a snakes tail. Then we went on another nighttime river hunt. It started to rain again, hard. But or guide wasn't going home without finding some sort of creature to see. Next thing we know there is another caiman in our boat! He wanted to take it to show the other guide, and gave it to Tess sitting across from me. After about 30 minutes (we were about an hour out) she was ready to give it back so the guide said to throw it back. What? !? After all that? No way! Give me the darn dragon! So I got to hold it the rest of the way back. In the dark and pouring rain, on the amazon river. How cool is THAT?!?!?!Read more

    Voller Gegensätze: kommerzielle Touristenviertel mit viel Street Art, romantischen kleinen Restaurants und Cafes, etliche Möglichkeiten an Aktivitäten, viel verrückter Verkehr, Viertel in die sich selbst Einheimische nicht verirren, abenteuerliche Fahrten mit den Öffentlichen, schmuddelige ärmere Viertel in denen man als Tourist sofort auffällt, Salsa im Park, spontanes Paragliden (Höhenangst? Nope.)Read more
