Peru – The #Amazon

September 14, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Our final leg of the journey found us visiting the Amazon. The Amazon actually accounts for about 50% of Peru’s land area, but only about 5-10% of its population because it is so inaccessible. We went to a place called Puerto Maldonado (by plane) and spend three nights in a VERY different climate and environment compared with the alpine Andes. Monkeys, oversized insects, and crazy sounding birds met us for 24hrs of the day.

    Great photos. The two parrot shots are stunners, you have a very good eye for composition … sorry to get boring, but this is the boredom blog – what camera do you have?

    Looking at the slide show almost makes me want to go there … well, other other than for the insects, ants, and general discomfort .. um, thank goodness for photos 😉

    Just a quick word to say how much I admire you getting out and travelling in spite of your health. I had a right hemicolorectomy (plus the removal of 21 infected lymph nodes) in November and am currently on cycle 6 of an 8-cycle oxaliplatin and capecitebine treatment. You are an inspiration and I intend to do something similar. My husband is off to a conference in Mexico in August and I plan to go with him (we hope to visit Guatemala as well). Hopefully I will be over the (somewhat gruelling) side effects of the chemo by then/no more tumours will pop up in the meantime to prevent me going.
