More From Iquitos!

This is the sun setting on the bank of a river in a pueblo we visited just outside of Iquitos.

As we drove out of Iquitos the housing conditions became more and more rustic. Despite these conditions the people are very happy.

All side streets are made of cement. Digging out the road and mixing the cement is all done by hand. Then sand is laid over the new cement to protect it from the elements while it cures.

Much to our amazement, some people actually live on the river in houses like these.
