Grubs, Elixirs, and Floating Houses




Be sure to check out my {GUEST POST} on Wild and Precious.  I never shared my experience of the Belen Market and the floating village of Belen in the Amazon Jungle of Peru.  Amazing photos.  Don't ask me why I never posted these!  There where too many amazing things to share, what can I say?  

If you want to see more, visit my guest post on Blair's blog {HERE}.

Oh YIKES! When I was in Japan I ate a chocolate-covered ant. But it didn't really look like an ant. These grubs really look like grubs! Ick.
Still, glad I found your blog :)

Wow - it's a dream of mine to go to the Amazon jungle too. Your pics are incredible! :) xo

Awesome photo of your hubby! Gotta love that he's eating what the locals eat.

When I take travel pictures, I get overwhelmed by the sheer amount I've taken, so oftentimes they sit in a folder.

p.s. just checked out the post on Wild and Precious. It was fun and informative! If you get a chance, don't forget to enter my giveaway.

Elisa, Croatia said...

Wow, you are Brave! those photos are great, What a great adventure. I will have to ask (because I'm curious) did you need specific vaccines? did you ever get sick? (drinking water etc?) I went to Mexico several years ago, I'm a native right, and guess what happened, I got sick!!ended in the hospital with IV antibiotics. Because I ate some goodies from a street vendor...I thought I was immune...LOL.

The Constant Complainer said...

I have some friends that ate chicken feet in China. Sounds about as bad as it looked in the picture. LOL.

My husband and I live in Peru, and I just read your recent guest post at "Wild and Precious".

Ive been keeping a list of the places I want to go in Peru, and I will be adding the Belen Market to that list!!
