Keeping in Touch

Iquitos is a bustling city.  It has many many more motocars (pictured) than cars or taxis.  It´s a bit hard to cross streets here as drivers are always testing the limits of yellow lights and many one way streets make crossing particularly difficult from oneside.  One should also watch out for dodgy sidewalks. 

Below are pictured some of the colonial style architecture, including the azulejos, the painted tiles, first imported from Portugal by Rubber Barrons to decorate their mansions.
