Day 3, pt 1

Day 3, pt 1: After a short 3 hour flight from Lima, I arrive in the Puerto Maldonado HQ of the Posada Amazonas Lodge. While enjoying my first taste of the forest in the gardens I pack only the necessary gear for my next few days, and leave the rest at a safe deposit. A short drive 20 kilometres to the Tambopata River Port (via all the cliché houses & community clusters – all mud brick & terracotta tile & rusty corrugated iron) & an excellent snack of native Amazon bananas & sugar-dusted brazil nuts, I enter the Native Community of Infierno as the port is a communal business (& I gotta say – the Amazon Peruvians are fit as buggery & nice as all get out!)
