Howlers, screamers and the perfect pisco sour
Guest blogger Louise Southerden [www.noimpactgirl.com] travels to the Peruvian Amazon with Lindblad Expeditions.
“Anybody been to the Galapagos?” asks expedition leader Carlos Romero at the first night’s briefing aboard the Delfin II, a 14-cabin luxury river vessel and our floating hotel for the next eight days. A few hands go up. “Forget it. Forget about [blue-footed] boobies in the middle of the walking tracks. This is the Amazon. Here, you have to work to see the animals.”
