Casey Finally in Peru!

Date: November 16, 2018
Approximate GPS Location: (4.28°S, 69.95°W)

Casey finished crossing the last swath of Brazilian jungle with his guide, Diego - an adventure which involved getting invaded by swarms of honey bees.

Then he crossed into Peru and met his new guide, Ricardo, who is from the banks of the Yavari River, the river that forms the border between Brazil and Peru. Casey's next major milestone will be the next major Peruvian Amazon city, Iquitos. The plan is for Ricardo to help him cross the wild stretch of jungle up to Iquitos.
