CAMILLE IS HERE! ;-)
Its so crazy. After a few hiccups in our scheduling and a few other things, we finally made it to Iquitos... or the deep jungle. It is quite an experience being in the middle of the jungle staying in a shack, speaking spanish with my sister, listening to the crickets through the net screens protecting us from the invading insects. We went on a small night boat trip in the amazon today and found ourselves watching fireflies zooming across the river and vampire bats swarming as the tried to add the "scary" factor to the deep jungle. For me, the fright might have worked but it wasn't because of the bats...our guide was trying to make his own jungle animal sounds and along with his broken singing in english it made for a very adventurous journey.
As we returned to our bungalow we were greeted by lizards, chickens and all sorts of jungles sounds. Including more vampire bats swooping down trying to drink from the pool in our jungle hangout.
I'll let you all know how it all goes, for now, enjoy a few pics;-)
