Day 68 - Piranhas for dinner / Piranyes per sopar

A travel blog entry by wanvigdot


... red piranhas. We fished with a stick that had a fishing line attached to the end and a wire leader with a hook. The teeth of the piranha are really impressive so the wire leader is a must. Before we throw the line, we need to shake the water so the fish think it is a dying animal and attracts them. Piranhas are cannibals.

Dinner, of course, included piranha. Delicious. They are really nice to eat, although there is not a lot of meat: mostly bones and huge ...

A travel blog entry by antonmarsh


We had a simple breakfast at the Amazon Apart hotel in Iquitos before being picked up by our guide for the next few days - Leo. We jumped in a taxi with him and after sorting out payments, taxi changes and money withdrawals in town we started on our way upriver to a town called Nauta, around 260 km upriver from Iquitos and the closest town to the beginning of the Amazon River - actually on the Maranon River. At the entrance to town ...
