Together with Ruthie I went to visit the Peruvian jungle in the area just before the Apurimac river joins the Mantaro River, driving the 197 kilometers from Ayacucho down to the jungle in a small truck zigzagging down small dirt roads for 8 hours. These photos start out in the town of San Fransisco where we first arrived, and continue in a small reserve some 30 kilometers south where we hiked in the jungle for two days on a path taking us past 5 magnificent waterfalls, all much to big to be captured with my 50mm lens. The rest of the photos are taken in or around Pichari, where the local city counsel were very enthusiastically helping us and inviting us fishing, as we were the only tourists who had come by for months.
