We’ve spent nearly 3 weeks all told in the Amazon region, half in Colombia and half in Peru. I have lots of notes and photos that will one day find themselves onto the blog, but at the moment by and large I’m limited to public internet access or my iPod when there is wifi (which is not very often at the moment), so you’ll have to bear with me.
Overall however it’s been quite an experience, it’s so goddamn big and remote and didn’t really go anywhere off the beaten track but even so.
The river itself is mind-boggingly huge, on the bits we saw it was a good half a mile across, and this is 2,500 miles from the Atlantic. It just dominates everything.
