As I sit here at the computer in Iquitos after 3 weeks at the lodge I find myself……. Itching to get back out there . Many guests have the same urge to come back and sometime not even leave. Fear not, this feeling IS natural and comes over me every time I have to make the trip back to the city. I generally have to spend some time before I go telling my birds to behave, not to miss me too much and to not chew on the lawn furniture. After some sobbing with my macaws, I make the move slowly to the port keeping in mind I will be back soon.
Many guests never want to say goodbye and are nearly dragged by family members down the port and into the boat mafia style. whatch his head! This reaction is normal, the jungle takes a firm grasp on your mind and body (not to mention the very comfortable environment of the lodge and especially the hammock room)
