... doesn't really suffice in the heat here. We were back in the land of deep fried stuffed potatoes, empanadas, and fried chicken. The people got significantly shorter and plumper which we have found to be common of the less westernised and cheap South American countries. Our lack of fluent Spanish is unfortunately a major hindrance in small towns such as these. Leticia is a jungle town and is therefore crawling with tour agencies offering jungle trips. We ...
