Oh the joys of a third world country

Diarrhoea, itchy bites, sun burn and no toilet seats

sunny 38 °C

Well good news i have my ankles back :) bad news i (Sherry) since i lasted posted got the squirts which was bound to happen i guess. I am better now as i got all drugged up (legal ones) and i now im good to go but not so curious of the local market food anymore haha.
As for Db we went on a tour of some local watering holes and more waterfalls and while i got sunburnt after applying spf50+ sunscreen (didnt even know there was such a thing) Db was attacked by mosquitos that even took to his face. He´s alright though so don´t panic hes still breathing.

Anyways i wont be able to post photos this time as the internet spped is worse than dial up, bit of a blast from the past really.
But we are both still safe and having a blast we are now in the small town of Moyobamba where we will soon leave to make our way up into the mountains to Chicapoyas, some place with old inca ruins.

Anyways since we last posted we travelled 4 hours by bus and it was the flashed bus we have ever been on only suckly thing about it was that i had to watch Beverly Hills Chi in Spanish (from what i made of it, it is a pretty cool film haha)

So now in Moyobamba we have been to some local hot springs with were pretty clean considering the place followed by some awesome natural springs and waterfalls just out of Moyobamba where i (Sherry) became the tourist attraction with a whole lot of children asking me questions in Spanish for ten minutes. Our firend had to tranmslate haha. One of the kids John Conner (haha i love his name) who started following me around got his teacher who speaks a bit of English to ask if i was married haha.

Will hopefully get a chance sometime to upload photos of John Connor and his friends as he wants me to make him famous in New Zealand.

Well tomorrow we leave bound for 7 hour bus/car through what we have been told is a pretty windy road. So think of us as you cruise along your quiet comfy streets.

Until we post again
Sherry and Db
