Amazon Jungle: Peru

July 3, 2009 - Lima, Peru

     So we just got back from the Amazon and it was amazing! We went on a couple hikes through the jungle, and went to the place that they filmed Motorcycle Diaries. We went on a midnight boat ride where they told us stories about how people have died in the Amazon, it was really scary. They told us this ledgend that if someone goes missing in the jungle and comes back fine, check their feet. If they have six toes on each foot it's not really them it's some kind of monster who has been recreated as your friend!! And our tour guide told us about people who have been killed by pumas, and anacondas, crazy stuff! We held monkeys, tucans, sloths, some even held an anaconda but I couldn't bring myself to!

     We also swam in the Amazon river with pink dolphins! It was incredible!! We tired this drug called Ayawasca that clears out your system and is supposed to be a very spiritual experience.

Hi Nicole,
Who could possibly imagine a better adventure than this one?! You look wonderful, healthy & inspired.

I thought of you so much today with all the fireworks. Thinking of all the 4th's that we have celebrated together in GLP--especially with you in the parades with your decorated bikes & red, white & blue outfits. You are so beautiful & I can't wait to see you again & share more great times. The wedding will be a great start! Be safe.
Love You,
Aunt Beth

I will always remember my journey to the Amazon in Peru; it was an unforgettable experience that changes my life. If you have the opportunity to visit Peru, you must go to the Amazon and stay for at least a week to know biological reserves, parks, rivers and its flora and fauna. Also, I want to recommend you to stay in Rainforest Expeditions, an Amazon lodges in Peru that offers the best of this part of Peru.
