Small town blues

PERU | Monday, 7 May 2007 | Views [615]

  Found out we may be stuck here for about 5 days until a launcha (big boat) gets here to head down river. We collect locals wherever we go, which is getting tiring fast – these guys don’t talk, just stare and listen in to others who are brave enough ... Read more >
