I stayed at the Hobo Hideout which has a few cool birds flapping around the place but is also decked out in loads of animal skins, furs and bones - not for animal lovers!
Anyway I quite like Iquitos. The local square Plaza de Armas is very busy and there are quite a few restaurants etc. Then there is the river bank street of Malecon Maldonado that really gets going at night with loads of buskers, music and pickpockets.
We ate at the Yellow Rose of Texas a few times, which is run by a pretty brash Texan who doesn't stop yapping, but the food there is awesome.
Iquitos is the biggest major city in the world without any road links. The only way out is by plane or by Boat. I have decided to fly out to Lima to make up some time and ground and because after the ordeal of my last boat ride I honestly cant be arsed.
