The Peruvian jungle was filled with deliciousness, mostly in the form of new to me fruits.
My favourites all the colours of the Karambola (star fruits). As always there's one huge exception, Noni looks and tastes like blue cheese.If it had been served to me on a cheese plate I would have loved it, but the incongruity of picking and peeling it, meant to my mind it was supposed to be sweet.
Gorgeous birds, flowers and plants. Ghastly insects, spiders and a gazillion butterflies. And a kick arse lightening storm. So worth being there in the wet season.
Back up to 3800m and the blueness of Lake Titicaca. Pretty special, and all the more so for spending time on it in both Peru and Bolivia (lassiez-faire if very slow overland border crossing : can't possibly see why they might have contraband issues).

And back in the land of good graffiti.
