Off to the jungle!
Starting tomorrow I will be OOF for two weeks visiting the remote jungles of Peru. You can read my itinerary here. I will also spend some time seeing Macchu Picchu and Cuzco. This trip was booked almost a year ago and some time ago I blogged about it. The lodges I am staying at are an interesting idea - involve the locals in the welfare and profits of ecotourism and they will be very unlikely to poach the animals. You can read an interesting article about this here.
I have spent the last several months brushing up on my Spanish and reading several interesting books on the rainforest. My wife is a bit concerned about anacondas and poisonous frogs but I am a bit more concerned about ants and botflies. If you do not know what a botfly is, then you probably don't want to know.
In the meantime I will prepost a series about travelling abroad with children.
