Tourist Photos in Peru

At Moyobamba in the north of Peru. It is on the other side of the Andes mountains. I went for a walk to the river and took some photos of the birds.

This ferry was crossing the river a bit further down from the port where all the tourist boats have their wharves.

The men were pushing the tuktuk up the hill. Mostly they would get bogged and they would have to get everyone to push them. One of them threw a chain off the sprocket so they had to flip it and put the chain back on.

This river was close to town and there was some nice bush surrounding it.

I stopped at construction work between Tarapoto and Tocache. They were pulling down the hill onto the road with a bulldozer and then bulldozing it down the other side of the road.

Before we went up the mountain we stopped for a few hours to have lunch and watch Peru play Holland in soccer. Holland won 2-1.
