Our first day out of Iquitos, sailing on the flooded Amazon River.
When we started out on our excursions, the guides were in a hurry to get us to our destination ... some small tributary along the Amazon. Note the muddy brown water. I'll point out, later, the mirror-like black water we also saw.
Once we got there, the skiffs slowed to a crawl as we searched for wildlife and listened to the sounds of the jungle.
