Tuesday, February 10th - This morning we fly from Lima to IQUITOS. From Iquitos we will embark on a twenty-five mile boat journey down the Amazon River to the Ceiba Tops Lodge, a private hotel in the middle of the rainforest. This is the start of the second portion of our three-destination tour. In the afternoon we are free to hike in the beautiful primary rainforest reserve thick with huge trees festooned with epiphytes (photo 1, photo 2, photo 3). In the evening we can relax to local flute or guitar music. I think I'll play my flute too! Wish you were here! Hi mom! Hi Dad! Hi Miss Jeanette!
