Can I live in Peru for two years without seeing the Amazon river? I think not! I took a few days of my vacation time and headed to Iquitos Peru, the jungle, to visit some friends with Extreme, see the Amazon and check out the jungle. It was an awesome experience and something I will never forget. Having the opportunity to walk through the jungle, see the Amazon with my own eyes, eat an alligator sandwich, hold a turtle and see another corner of this world created by our Lord was an incredible blessing. Here are some pictures from my trip to share this journey with you.....
Holding some random lady's turtle on the street.
They are heavier than you would think.
The Iquitos Extreme girls, they let me stay with
them, cooked for me and showed me around town!
These monkey's are little robbers. This guy tried to get into
Bri's backpack and another tried to steal my sunglasses!
Kid's Sunday School class in the street.
This butterfly sat on my hip for a while!
This fruit is very common in Iquitos. Its called Aguaje
and I think it taste like cheese.
Although Iquitos is in Peru, it is world's different from Puno.
The climate, accents, combi's, food, culture, its all very distinct.
It was awesome to experience Iquitos, Peru!
