  The Market in Puerto Maldonado
by Paul2001

Most people rush through Puerto Maldonado never giving it a thought along the way. To be honest from what I saw of it, Puerto Maldonado is not all that interesting but I was guided through the market and found it fascinating. The market here was quite lively and sold all kinds of odds and ends from the nearby jungle. This of course includes nuts grown on the plantations in the vicinity. The market is very colourful as many of the locals still wear there indigenous clothing.
