Volunteering with CARES - Getting There

Peru 2011 - Volunteering with Amazon CARES by Shannon Sullivan

For two weeks this June I had the privilege of traveling to Iquitos, Peru, and the surrounding area for a volunteer veterinary mission with the organization Amazon CARES. The group I traveled and worked with was wonderful! Here is our story. (A huge thank you to the Bodkins, Debby, and Anthony for sharing their photos!)

One of the hardest parts of the trip was just getting there. It took one day and four different airplanes to get to Iquitos, then a boat to get to the jungle.
A rough flight plan.

At the Spokane Airport. It may look like a lot of luggage, but the Hayden Pet Medical Crew brought along a lot of medical supplies to donate.

In the air on our way to Seattle.

At the Lima Airport. Three planes down, one to go!
