Random and Out of Order Pictures

monkey island greeter

tapir fur--this was the baby; full-grown is all one color 
the family demonstrating squeezing the sugar cane which eventually becomes rum, but we tasted it right out of the shoot...and strained through a cloth we'd rather not talk about

dinner our last night at the Ramada next to the airport--causa, a Peruvian dish with potatoes, avocado, crab...delish

Had to cross yet another suspension log bridge to get to the island where Explorama has their other lodge and the river people tribe we visited

our dance partners--well, mine was a very ancient man, so he's not in this picture.  They later took off those tops when we were buying from or trading with them.  Matthew said maybe I should have brought some bras to trade....

the little tarantula I saw on our walk on our way to the rum factory

How we relaxed after lunch on our tours when we were at a lodge.  I suggested getting a couple for the living room. 

Matthew getting the energy treatment from the shaman--and yes, he's as hot as he looks.  No, not the shaman, the temperature in that hut. 
Silly me...my new hat purchased in Cusco--crocheted with a plastic covered bill like a ball cap.  Kept my hair from flying all over in the boat.

Cool flower arrangement in our bathroom at the lodge. 
Can you guess?  This is the result of that canopy walk...and you thought I exaggerated.
Many colorful macaws and parrots around the camps/lodges.  I won't comment on these two....but aren't they pretty?

Yeah, me and my new friend.  Don't tell Fancy and Farwell.  They think I save myself for cuddling just with them.  Oh, the face is because he started sucking my neck for the salt.

  2. Is that monkey Mayo? He was the friendliest when we were there, and super dirty. We have pictures of him kissing me... And that Shaman, we had some kind of healing ceremony, and I got a scorpion tattoo but it didn't stick on me b/c I was so sweaty! Very hot day... That's the day I got the runs... in the jungle! Not fun.

  3. The Shaman is Pedro and he did an energy thing with those who wanted it. We both did it...but Matthew went first in the group. What a bad bad place to have the runs! Peeing was bad enough...kept worrying the mosquitoes were going to bite my butt!

  4. That is one scary spider photo! My son was nonplussed, though, as he says tarantulas don't attack you.
