|Iquitos is a very cool jungle town on the edge of the Amazon. Thanks to the hundreds of motorbike taxis it's constantly humming and when we were there the weather was sunny and hot and on the humid side. While we were there we checked out a nearby zoo which had lots of monkeys and my favorite jungle creature, Capybaras (like a big guinea pig that swims), Pumas, Jaguars and Paiche (giant fish found in the Amazon which Charlie also had for dinner one night). We also checked out the busy market and bought some delicious and cheap avocados and fried bananas and fried fish. We didn't plan to stay here long, it was more for the journey itself, so we bought a plane ticket to Lima for the next night.
