Auto rickshaws in Iquitos

Auto Rickshaws, often called mototaxis in Peru, or tuk-tuks (I think tuk tuk is a Thai term, and that is what we called them) are a common form of transportation. (There is a UK company whose brand name is MMW Tuk Tuks.) They are 3-wheeled motorcycles holding a cabin for the riders. They often have fancy decor on them. We saw lots of them and took several rides in them.

Here is what I saw during part of one ride through town.
