There are so many things I love about Iquitos...

…it really has quickly become home to us. I love the mototaxis, the rain, the sun, seeing full families fit on motorcycles…oh so many things. But for us, the most wonderful thing about Iquitos is the people. The people of this city are really warm and welcoming. The houses here are always open, people sitting on the sidewalks visiting and watching the passersby. The kids that live next to the church always run out to give us (mostly Kai) hugs when we arrive and the boys on our street keep their eyes out for Tyson to play soccer with. Today Kai and I walked to the corner store for a treat and visited with the lady that runs it, then on the way back a neighbor invited us in to visit for a while. We love the simplicity of this life here and the small town feel of this city of 700,000!
