Moyobamba & Tarapoto (Orchids, Scooters, Waterfalls)

These two gems are set right on the last emerald rumples of the Andes, before they flatten out into the green carpet of the Amazon. Moyobamba treated me to hundreds of orchids and flowers a-full. 4 year-olds selling pineapples and wielding 9-inch knives. In Tarapoto, I fjorded jungle streams to the waist to reach waterfalls and puttered around in pure bliss. Until I burned the hell out of my leg, that is. But I still love Tarapoto. The photos give a flavor, but nothing can replicate the fruits that make up the mirror universe of jungle juices: guanabana, maracuya, cocona.
