Mike Tobar – 8/23

Today we went on the canopy walk. I can’t explain how beautiful the Amazon Jungle is, with all of the various wildlife, insects, and animals. The clinic in Iquitos was hard work and nonstop, which was very rewarding because of the large volume of patients we were able to see. But having clinic on the Amazon Princess was unlike anything I’ve ever done. After the canopy walk (where we reached heights of over 100 ft on some rickety walkways 😳), the local shamans presented us with some of their natural remedies they use in the Amazon. It was really cool to see how efficacious some of these products were, I even bought an anti inflammatory cream that they were selling. Unfortunately I have to leave the trip a couple days early for a wedding, but I will never forget this trip.
