The mysterious Amazon…

Back in 2008, after my 4 day trek to Machu Picchu, I went to the Peruvian Amazon river basin to recuperate. From Puerto Maldonaldo, we took a boat ride up the Tambopata river to stay in a jungle lodge. During the day, we would go on exploration walks into the forest with a guide. At night, we would take a ride up the river to look for caimans or explore the forest. The rainforest holds a mystery that cannot be found anywhere else.
