Setting Sail on the Amazon!

Andrea here, signing in to detail the rest of the journey. We fly from Lima to Iquitos, landing in the late afternoon. At the tiny Iquitos airport, we meet up with the rest of the group going on the Aqua cruise. I have to say, the folks from Aqua Expeditions more than lived up to the hospitality we've come to expect from Peruvians. After a couple of hours on a very nice bus with bottled water and yummy plantain chips, we made it to the boat. The MV Aqua will be our home for the next four days as we go through the Pacaya Samira National Preserve. And what a home it is! While it's small, only 24 passengers, it's packed with luxury and the most incredible staff you can imagine. And forget grubs and snails, for dinner we had a 20-course tasting menu. Okay, maybe not 20 courses, but a lot. Each more delicious than the last. The other passengers are great and we meet some new friends almost immediately. As I'm drifting off to sleep that first night, all I can think is that I'm on the Amazon! The Amazon for gosh sakes!
