Last night was a great night for sleeping with no monkey sightings this time at Posadas Amazonas. I wonder, will I be able to sleep without the constant sound of the jungle as a backdrop?

Our Temporary Tattoos
|My tat is the one on the left – butterfly; Rebecca’s hands
were stained with the ink.
Our guide had some fun putting on temporary tattoos in celebration of carnival last night. He used the seeds of a fruit that at first didn’t show any color until this morning. Rebecca’s totally getting a kick out of people staring at her hands and doing double takes. My simple temporary tat that he drew, a butterfly, is a little messy but I love it. These mementos will only last about a week and we’ll be back to normal soon.

Onto Cuzco, Peru
After the boat ride, bus ride, then the airplane, we arrived safely in Cuzco, Peru and found a reasonable taxi. He knew exactly where our hostel was, ecopackers, which is good because he received a phone call during the ride that spurred him on. We went from a nice, relaxing ride to suddenly being in an Indy car race. Nothing like seeing the streets of Cuzco at a breakneck pace!

Safely checked in, we opened our bags and had a bit of a shock. I knew it was very humid in the Amazon, but we didn’t expect every piece of clothing to be soaking with humidity, kind of like they had sat in a sauna for a few hours. All our clothes had to go straight to the laundry!
