I was alone on my second day in Tarapoto. My new friends set out for Yurimaguas to set sail on a ship that would take them to Iquitos, the heart of the Amazon rainforest, on a spectacular journey through the interior of the river for two nights and one day.


In Lamas there is a curious ethnological museum that for two suns the guard will show you its charms. It is a most surreal visit. He was the only visitor and the Lord, with a difficult Spanish, showed me the place and explained each of the sociological performances of the Lama people in a lightning visit. They passed from scene to scene with tremendous rapidity and the man wondered and answered himself with astonishing speed.

Inside the museum there are scenes of lama life such as marriage, work in the countryside and other customs. In turn, they display an innumerable entourage of stuffed animals such as pumas, huge rats, bears and skins of boas and anacondas.

I gave him a small tip and he told me how to get to the Lama village.
