From the Amazon

I only have a few minutes but here are a few glimpses of our journey so far.

Our first view of the Amazon basin

At the place where the Rio de Solineos and the Rio de Negro meet and it becomes the Amazon

Farmland along the river

Fishing boats we used to go up and down the river

The group of assistants who carried luggage, drove boats, wove crowns, cut clove bark, shot arrows, threaded fish hooks - pretty much did everything!

Piranha fishing

We are leaving Brasilia in an hour and heading 475 km southeast to see farms today. Love you all!
