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 donīt jump, just break the water and you see the typical nose and the rose back, hard to take fotos, I didnīt 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.
