Trip to Iquitos

It has been nice to have such great people to work with here at Iquitos with Amazon Cares, the volunteers are doing a great job with animals, I am trying to get the best photos I am able of the work being done, I never saw a city where there are only motorcars instead of cars, and also the first time I see buses made of wood, well half wood half metal, the transit of vehicles is really busy, this morning while going to the campaign place the motorcar i was going in, almost crash with a motorbike, same when I was coming from the airport, the motorcars were driving so close that it was scaring, I don’t want to have an accident because of irresponsible drivers, well that’s Iquitos a lot of motorcars, obviously the bad drivers are few. So far I have only seen 2 cars, when i just here i was wondering, are there cars in this city? XD, is a really nice city, I need to take some more pictures but yeah is my second day here.

*and here are the photos*
