Amazon River Ferry Boat
This October, 2009 trip covered the Amazon River, Bolivia & Machu Piccu.
This is the Amazon River page.
The main adventure was the Amazon River cruise. We cruised the Amazon for 6 days, stopping often & exploring all we could. Next was Bolivia, to see Lake Titicaca & Tiwanaku. We crossed back into Peru to see the ruins of Machu Picchu & Sacsayhuaman. I was last there in 2006, this time I explored areas I had not seen before.
Our unnamed river boat
Our trip began in Iquitos, Peru's main Amazon River port. Built in 1864, in the heart of 'rubber country'. The architecture is of a 19th century era when European 'rubber barons' held sway.
Bolivia is next.
