I’m reporting live from Lima, where I’ve returned to the land of decent internet connections after eleven days in the jungle. My dear friend Zoe arrived yesterday, marking a new — and super fantastic — chapter in this journey. I’m shivering my buns off, but otherwise enjoying searching out hidden gems across Peru’s overlooked capital.
This week’s photos, from my time in Iquitos and onboard The Aria, were incredibly difficult to narrow down, a problem I’m sure won’t go away anytime soon while I’m here in Peru. In fact, now that I’m making such an effort to close the gap between real time and blog time, I’m wondering if Photo of the Week is still as relevant. But it’s hard to break a habit after 123 weeks, so for now I’ll keep on keepin’ on.
