Welcome to the Jungle

With Guns and Roses playing in our heads we went into the Jungle on Monday morning. After what can only be described as a perilous bus journey over some quite rough mountains and down some pretty steep roads we stopped off at a small local village for lunch and a browse through the markets - potatoes seem to feature a great deal.

Then it was back on the road for some an even more frightening bus journey we finally reached our destination, a small town in the cultural region of Manu national park. Luckily they´d built a nice new bridge so we didn´t have to cross this one!

I guess not much new stuff makes it out here, lots of pretty old trucks lying around.

Lovely views of the mountains that we´d just come over:

And here´s our intrepid group:

Lots of fresh produce to buy. Pineapples going for just 10 centimes - that´s about 6 pence!
