Onward to the Jungle

The second half of my weekend adventure will be posted soon, but I wanted to update my followers on my current movements. I just left Lima and grabbed a 20 hour bus over the Andes to Pucallpa, where I will grab a boat along the Amazon river to Iquitos, the largest city in the world that’s not reachable by road. The boat to Iquitos takes 4 days, the passengers string hammocks along the deck and sleep there together for the entire journey. I can barely contain my excitement, I could never even imagine I would be exploring the Amazon!! I might not post for some time, as it’s unlikely I will have Internet in the Amazon, but I will keep you all posted!  

   

Goodbye Lima, Hello jungle! It has been such an amazing journey so far. I have been inspired, motivated, educated, and amazed. I can’t wait to continue my journey by trekking through the Amazon during the next 10 days! 😍
