Leaving the Amazon Jungle

After the clay click, we returned to the lodge to have breakfast at 7:30 am. After breakfast, we collect our bags and had a little time before we had to leave. So we visited the small gift shop at the lodge, featuring hand-made crafts made by the locals. Profits go directly to the person who made each item, their names were taped to each item, in order to keep track. We bought wooden parakeet and I promptly name her "Paquita" after a cat that went missing after George's left an apartment door open on Seinfeld.

The boat left at 8:30 am, and we traveled for 45 minutes back to meet up with a bus to take us to the Puerto Moldonado airport. Before boarding the bus, there were some Amazonian ladies selling Brazil nuts, so we bought some. We had to wait for almost 2 hours in the airport, and I had a very cheap spicy sausage sandwich for 5 sols.
