Extreme Peru: Part Ten

On my last morning in Puerto Maldonado, I got up early to see some of the town. I hailed a motorcycle, paid one Sol (about 30 cents), and rode down to Plaza de Armas, the main square.

The Catholic Church...

The Plaza de Armas had all kinds of public service announcements hand painted onto little signs. The taller of these announcements says, "Don't step on me. I also have life." The second one says, "Practice your good actions through your example."

The Madre de Dios River...

Ferrying cars across the river...

Madre de Dios means Mother of God, which is the namesake of the river and the region.
