Day 1 in the Amazon!October 29 in Peru
We've just arrived in the Peruvian Amazon, specifically the city of Iquitos, Peru's Atlantic Ocean port. Yes, the Atlantic, almost 2,000 miles away via the Amazon River.
Yesterday, after our terrific walking tour, we met up with a couple of Lima hashers, who led us just a couple of kilometers from the hotel to more Pre-Incan/Incan ruins. We had dinner in a lovely Italian trattoria. Not mush partying at the hotel bar afterwards; everyone was beat and had to be up early.
This morning we left the hotel at a 06:45. Lima has very dense traffic, so we had an early go for our 10 am flight.
But now we're being accompanied by Victor and Vladimir, the tour guides who are leading us to our boat that will take us to our riverside lodge, the Heliconia. Yay!!
So long [for now] and thanks for all the fish. ✌️Read more
