Has anyone seen that McDonald's ad for the Brazilian burger? It's the one where the people travel to the Brazilian rain forest, then instead of experiencing the idyll they had expected, they are drenched by endless, torrential rain.

I think I'm about to experience something similar: I shall be in the Amazon rain forest in Peru from Wednesday of next week, where thunderstorms are forecast for three of my four days; then I am heading to Cusco to begin the four-days' trek to Machu Picchu, where the forecast is for... yep, you guessed it!

Of course, 14-days' forecasts are always subject to change: five days before I travelled to Athens, the forecast was for rain on five of my eight days, but apart from a couple of short, light showers on the day of my arrival, it was a dry and sunny 24 Celsius for the entire week. I'm hoping for a similar change in Peru, but my rucksack has a built-in rain cover and I'm packing my full waterproofs, just in case!

I was in Peru earlier this year...It definitely pours when it rains..but it can also be very hot in and around Cusco..Machu Picchu is good..you should have a lovely time!!

Must be hard for these guys having all these gold bars and loot boxes cluttering up their warehouse. I imagine they can hardly get the forklift around the place

Thanks, ST; it's been the best thing I've ever done - I'm flying home in four hours or so and (apart from one light shower on the second day of the Inca Trail, which was very welcome in the heat) although there has been rain, I've managed to be indoors or on a bus whenever it's happened, so I'm still dry (he says, just before walking to Lima airport!).

I hope you had as much fun on your trip as I've had on mine; Peru is my favourite country visited so far and has enhanced my life more than I dared believe possible.

I was watching a video about the Jarawa people. Who if nothing is done will soon sadly become tourist attractions.

I thought this quote from the website was lovely and summed up perfectly where the rest of the human race has gone awry.

Quote:
Far from the clichés perpetuated by Indians who believe the Jarawa are cannibals, the most ancient people in the world still carry human values that we have forgotten or are trying to recover. The Jarawa live happy and free, without creeds or fears, without a leader or a hierarchy. They live simply on what nature gives them, without speculating on the future, without regretting the past. They only hunt for what they need. They respect their environment. They live in harmony, without violence or hatred. They live in peace and solidarity. For millennia, they have managed to preserve their joy of life.



If they disappear, we will lose the memory of the first human beings, the ancestors of all of us.

Currently pretending to be in an another country on a dating app, quite interesting to see the difference in my appeal, it varies wildly. There's still hope for me yet...

Yes I know I'm sad, but I may as well try and have some fun with this shit.

With all the talk of vegetablarism I decided to buy some new milk to try in my tea today. Oat, rice, soy, almond, I just couldn't choose.

In the end I decided on Channel Island whole milk. It's so rich and creamy, it's so dreamy.
