We got on the river Madre de Dios and headed downstream. I was really surprised at the size of the river. Our guide said it is between 90 and 100 feet deep and between 1/4 to 1/2 mile wide. They are in the process of building a bridge to the other side in Puerto Maldonado.
This is the boat that we rode on with a canopy. It was nice with the wind blowing. We were on the water for an hour an a half getting to the Planet Amozon where we launched into the jungle proper.
This is where we got off the river. One of the many butterflies that Karen was always trying to take a picture of.
We put on boots that came to just below the knees.
