Bienvenidos a Peru.wmv [00:46]
Anitclimax is what I found over the Zumba, Ecuador to San Ignacio, Peru border, anticlimax and a surly immigrations officer (here seen in the red shirt) waiting to give me a so-so first impression of his country. From there, things didn´t exactly improve; my driver charged me 50 soles for my ride to San Ignacio, a price I now know to be horribly gringo-inflated. To add insult to financial injury, he crammed in four other guys into the car, so not only was I ripped off, I was ripped off with sweaty elbows jamming into my ribs. But, it happens, and my journey to Iquitos had to start somewhere. I´ve chose to use a route that is not recommended in various tour guides, namely because it´s infrequently traveled and involves so many bus transfers and stops. Being off the beaten trail will be a new experience for me, at least on this trip; here´s hoping all goes well!
