My friend and her puppies Juan, husband of Linda retrieving the hearts of palm trees (palmitos) for my farewell meal

1st wife of Ernesto the head of the family

What a place.

A family of 20, Kilometre 48... Pastaza Region Ecuador.

I stayed in their home for a week, these are just a few of the people I met.

They were kind and open and helpful and easy going.

Even though my Spanish was terrible.

Shuar culture. Arutuam Spirit.

The Amazon... a pharmacy, a family member, a jungle, a forest

Rapidly disappearing.
