Water with geengrocery - Iquitos

Water with geengrocery

Get out in the Amazon jungle some days!

Favorite thing: Spend some days in the jungle! Not so many animals to look at, mostly birds of much colour, rose river delphins (they don´t jump, just break the water and you see the typical nose and the rose back, hard to take fotos, I didn´t have any luck), if you are lucky you can see some monkeys.
You can go fishing pirayas 10-15 cm, they are very good to eat if you ask the hotel to cook them.
The rain forrest is very beautiful and nice. I think this is a sort of civilized jungle, if you want some harder jungle, you have to go further in.

The mixing zone - Iquitos

The mixing zone

The mix of rivers

Favorite thing: At Iquitos the Amazon river meets the river Nanay. This forms a zon between the two rivers that changes as the levels of the two rivers are changing. The Amazon river is the brown one.
