No More Portuguese; Time to Learn Spanish

Date: December 02, 2018
Approximate GPS Location: (4.28°S, 69.95°W)

Having recently crossed the border from Brazil to Peru, Casey has taken the initiative to expand his knowledge of Spanish. Besides the urgency to learn Spanish, arriving in the new country has necessitated a whole new suite of logistics. Casey says he's waiting for the arrival of new bank cards, a video camera, hammock and backpack. He is also route planning, writing, resolving tech issues, organizing guides and tending to other logistics.

The next leg of Casey's Amazon journey will be from the Brazilian border to Iquitos, Peru.
