I had two full days in Puerto Maldonado. I went to the doctor, and the very nice Dra. Rocio M. Castañeda from the Centro Médico Cubamedic looked at my knee, and said that there is nothing major, only some tendon is a bit inflamated. I got a cream, patches and an elastic bandage. I also had the time to “tropicalize” my gear.
Later I went to the best bike repair shop in Puerto Maldonado and there my friend Moises fixed my wheels and the handlebar, and told me about the two Peruvians I met on day 16 while going down to Marcapata. They got their camera stolen on the way and the phone in Cusco. He was saying: “we people from the jungle keep our soul in our palm”. I can only testify to that.
