So I keep trying to think of semi-exciting things to write about. But all I can seem to think to tell you is that it is SO HOT in Iquitos right now. I'm sitting here in shorts and a tank top, with a fan only 1 foot away blowing on me at full blast, and I am STILL sweating. It's a little ridiculous. I drink so much water every day and yet lately I rarely have to use the bathroom because I just sweat everything out.

Today the weather report says it's 93 degrees. But with the 59% humidity the weather report also says it "feels like" 106. It's been like this for a couple of weeks now. And it's not going to start to cool down to a good 80 or 85 degrees until probably January, when the rainy season starts up again.

So anyway... this is the jungle. This is what I signed up for. And I'm even relatively used to it by now. But it has just been at an extreme level lately!
