Off to Peru to teach NRT. Fluffy is an International Dinosaur.
We stayed the night at the airport. Over the years I have been so mesmerized by the awful art in this Hotel. Most people staying here are headed to Machu Picchu. Finally I saw a painting that the famous mountain in it. Still ugly. Migraine headache ugly.
Heading to Iquitos. That is the Amazon River below us.
It is definitely the Amazon jungle. Iquitos is a hot place that is mostly on stilts or logs under the homes so they can float when needed.
The kids play soccer when the river recedes.
We took a little boat ride out onto the Amazon to a restaurant.
The entrance to the boat shuttle is down a long stairway with mud stone steps.
The Merrill's are the Humanitarian Missionaries in Peru. We loved working with them. They have a great calling.
The trainings went well.
It was so hot. I sat with my feet in the pool. Fluffy joined me.
We took a little ride to a chocolate factory. It was down a dirt road in the jungle. The chocolate was very very good. We took a tour of the factory.
Jeff carrying all the chocolate up the dirt road.
In Lima we went to Jeff's favorite place to eat. The burger folks had a burger with onion rings on it. I had macaroni and cheese. No burgers for me.
