Iquitos, Peru Below the Boards: The Scorpion Life

As something of a joke I asked Alfredo to come with me on a treasure hunt at Belen to see what exotic stuff we could find to impress the folks back home. I live in dark and dirty places often, and my life exposed would shock and horrify most people who live the life of my fellows, those middle class people like Alfredo, one of whom I think I am in most ways in spite of my travels into the other realms of humanness. I look around, I see things, I wonder, and I look ever deeper. At some point I must have lost sight of the boundaries of middle class normal. I like Belen very much. I feel good there. And finding the best of stuff that others likely have not seen makes me feel all the better in my explorations. I found what I was looking for. I found the ultimate treasure.
