Iquitos, day 2

click any image to enlarge

after a relaxing morning, we took a short boat ride to the local mariposaria, or butterfly farm, where local species are preserved, and some rescued animals also live. on the way back, our moto driver accommodated me by stopping wherever i wanted to take pictures. i got some great shots of lumber operations, and best of all, he drove me right inside the commercial port, where i walked all over shooting to my hearts content, only to have a guy come out of the guard house at the very end as i was taking a picture of the entrance. he said "es prohibido tomar fotos" and i said "OK, no mas", and we left. the last two above are from the port.
