CPCD #1 – The Amazon

This is the first CPCD – Crappy Phone Cam Dispatch – from Puerto Maldanado, Peru.

First off, if you don’t know what a Crappy Phone Cam Dispatch (CPCD) is here is an explanation. Second, after eight days in the rainforest, I am still without my lost luggage. Yeah, that’s right – in the wettest, most humid, hottest, steamiest, sweatiest, muddiest, rainiest  place imaginable on the face of the Earth,  I had one set of clothes for the entire eight-plus days. The good news is that I should be getting my checked bag today when I fly to Cusco for the mountain phase of my Peru trip.

Here are a few crappy phone cam images from the Amazon. Enjoy.
