We flew from Detroit to Atlanta, Atlanta to Lima, spent seven hours in the Lima airport until 6am, then flew from Lima to Iquitos. We took a bus from the city of Iquitos to the campus of Nina Rumi, then boarded the boat.

This is the boat we took. In the past, Steve Irwin rode this boat for a special on pythons in the Amazon. (Photo credit: Corey Bowen)
