Reporting live from Peru! Well, just barely thanks to the expletive-inducingly slow internet connections in Iquitos. I arrived in the city after a cash-saving thirty-one hour, four flight journey, and then turned around and set off the next morning for the jungle. And deep in the Amazon, I found the perfect place to refresh and shake off travel fatigue.
Now I’m back in Iquitos for a few days catching up on work and life admin (why is it that dropping off laundry and going to the post office seem so fun in foreign countries?) before heading back out to the jungle. I am feeling fantastic. The stress I was feeling at home has melted off right with my makeup in this sweltering city, and I know I’m back where I belong — on the road.
One of the biggest requests from the reader survey was you guys want my posting schedule to be closer to real time… so look out for your first full Peru post coming up this week!
