We had an ant infestation in our room overnight but the hostel were lovely about it and moved us to another room, however the same thing happened in our second room.
The guy who runs the place was also very helpful and gave us loads of info about boats to Iquitos.
It would have been nice to have been told the kitchen is locked overnight. We put food in the kitchen for the 12 hour boat ride to Iquitos but at 2am wwhen we had to leave, we couldn't get to it.

... on a well worn path, with Avelardo slashing a path with his machete. Searching for animals and insects, the scenery was lush and it was a great trek, finally in the Amazon after years of fantasising about going there. Despite only really seeing some very well camouflaged insects, we thoroughly enjoyed every moment. I took a rather embarrassing tumble after the log I was standing on, gave way. An experience Chris probably enjoyed more than me! Returning to our lodge ...
... t going to be spent watching anacondas slither their way along the banks, and my sleeps, (the journey takes at least 72 hours), wouldn't be peppered with the wild shrieks of howler monkeys. Added to the this, I didn't fancy three nights in a hammock, leaving me bent like a banana. The speed boat may have been nearly double the price but it was only scheduled to to take eight hours - about as long as I cared to sweat for.
I already knew that in order to leave Peru I ...
... in the wrong place, we waited for a bus to take us to the right part of the airport. With just under an hour to spare, we checked in and went through to our lounge. Mini drama over. The 2 hour flight to Leticia was a breeze, and there were only about 4 or 5 tourists in total on the plane. As soon as we stepped off the plane you could feel the heat of the jungle instantly, as the place filled your lungs with humid air. Mahutu Lodge was a short 10 minute taxi ...
... into Tabatinga. There was good music blasting from a PA and the arrival signified a new chapter of my trip: new country, no more boats (for a log time at least), good food, better sleeping accommodations, more and better people (than the Amazon), and a new language. After a 5 minute ride in a van (in which we squished 10 travelers with all their stuff, somehow), we were in Leticia, Colombia, a small but pretty cool city. We all, aside ...
... wasn’t much to do but have a quick look at the market complete with crazy array of fish we had never seen before. We had a quick squiz at the amazon and at the village on the other bank (500m) called Santa Rosa. Santa Rosa is in Peru and we will be heading there when we return from the World Cup. We soon retreated into the aircon of our hotel room as I had turned back into the sweat monster. We had some lovely local fish for diner and tried the various ...
