Over the weekend, I visited Iquitos, which is the largest city in the world inaccessible by road with over 400,000 inhabitants. But really I only flew into Iquitos and passed through it on my way to a hotel in the Amazon Rainforest. Before we got to the hotel, however, we visited a manatee reserve where they raise baby manatees until they are old enough to be released into the wild. I got to feed a baby manatee!
Also, I caught a piranha!
And I climbed a palm tree.
And I held a sloth!
I had a ton of fun in the amazon and got to know a lot of cool people who are studying abroad here with me. I loved hiking through the rainforest and seeing all the native wildlife that I very well may never get to see again (although I hope that I do!) All in all, it was one of my favorite experiences in my life.
