The mystic river runs through the Peruvian jungle for nearly four miles at temperatures hot enough to boil a chicken for a nice chicken soup. It took Andrés Ruzo from 2010 until 2013 to prove to the world that the river was natural, and not the result of human activity related to oil-drilling activity or a gas mining mishap.
