          The lodge is about a 1.5 hour journey by fast launch from Iquitos so is well in to the forest. It is in a very peaceful location although the resident macaws can sometime get noisy. We stayed in one of the separate huts which was at the end of the garden and had a private bathroom and its own separate seating area. Our guide, John, was incredible at spotting wildlife in the trees by the river from a distance as we drifted by. The hike into the forest was OK but we stayed at a mosquito-infested site for the night which made it difficult to do anything else but sit under a net. Lodge owner Anthony said that the campsite lodge would soon be fitted with mosquito nets so this should be less of an issue in the future. The food at the lodge was first class and all the guides and machete guys were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. A great place to get an insight into forest life

          We had booked a few days in a jungle lodge and we travelled there in a fast launch along the Amazon with one of our fellow guests, Darren, a seafood chef from New Zealand.

          First stop was a sugar cane plantation where I got to feed sugar cane into an ancient press whilst Darren played the part of the donkey that would normally operate the …

We spent a while getting shuttled from hostel to hostel trying to find a good spot to stay. We finally settled on an America owned hostel called Hobo Hideout. It's very clean and the owner's Peruvian wife is very sweet. Simone and I first went to get food at a local market (not the ...

          Last day and a visit to the "zoo"

          ... for the foreigner price of 9 soles (about $3). The initial walk downhill into Quistacocha takes you the dolphin "ponds". This was easily the most depressing part of the zoo. There was a single, small gray dolphin slowly swimming in circles while moving pieces of a life vest probably thrown in to give him something to play with. The area was fenced in very tight -- a square enclosure less than 10 meters long on each side -- leaving a relatively tiny space for a creature used to ...

Yet as in any compelling drama, specific limitations and lapses are needed to shape the plot and give it tension and intrigue. The dynamic tension for each living script grows from the limits of fate and the longings for destiny that first awaken in youth. What becomes fully lived is the story that was trying to surface all along.
