Into the jungle – part 1 (22nd Dec 2009)

I head to Iquitos for Christmas, a town deep in the Amazon jungle, accessible only by boat or plane. Since time is running out I chose the plane.

With hot, dense green jungle, this is a world away from the Andean part of Peru. Cars are scarce here so most use tuk-tuks instead, which they call motocars. It almost feels like I’m in Thailand.

A short boat ride up the Amazon is the Butterfly Farm, where I meet an amusing monkey.

Next, I head out for a 4 day expedition into the jungle proper.
