    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.

    ... capitalist economy, one thing has suffered the most, the environment. Deforestation, pollution, over hunting and fishing have had a huge impact on an area much more than just the surrounding region. And it is not only the environmental impact that is a cause for concern but also the rapid cultural change, as tomorrow's future leave the forests where their families have lived for centuries to swap it for the dirt, noise and hustle of the frontier towns loosing that ...

    ... a local guide who didn't speak a word of English. After zipping along the river for quite some time we came to a small settlement on the bank which had a wooden platform with the village women standing on along with an assortment of animals. Of course it was set up just for tourists and they expected a tip at the end but I didn't mind as they had five two toed sloths. The sloth we saw in Ecuador was a three toed sloth which means it's nocturnal. The two ...

    ... 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 ...

    ... the fact the price I'd not bothered haggling was a rip-off in the first place, my driver agreed to take me the three minute ride back to the port. This left me with the second problem - I had precisely zero money to pay the small fee for the ferry cross the Mersey. By a coincidence I was wearing my Brazil shirt, which I knew had some value because in Cusco, a man offered to exchange it for a giant pan-pipe. Oh if only I'd had room in my bag...

    Thankfully I didn't ...

    ... windows. At least each seat had a life jacket. About 1 hour into the journey disaster struck - the Flipper had an accident. I’m still not entirely sure what happened, but there were lots of lights being shone, and we stopped at the end of a jetty for about 30 minutes. Then on to another port for about an hour, where there were police and army waiting for the boat. There were a few cut heads, and some bags seemed to be missing from the roof. The boat ...
