... boat journey was long and I dreaded it as we all know I suffer from severe sea sickness. However I dosed up to the max and placed my sea sickness arm bands on and off we went down the Amazon river. It wasn't enjoyable, but we made it. The boat dropped us at Santa Rosa, the Peruvian side of this boarder as we had to get to the immigration office for our exit stamp to leave Peru. Due to high water season we had to get a small ...
