Living on the Amazon River tributaries

Hi everyone!

Greetings from the Amazon. Last night we arrived to our second homestay near Pucallpa. We have had a blast learning about traditional dances in two Shabivo communities! We had the privilege to attend the first traditional dance competition in the community of Nueva Betania, and then we’re greeted last night by an epic dance circle in the town of Santa Clara.

Today we learned about Santa Clara’s reforestation project and projects to revitalize their medicinal garden. Tomorrow we go fishing! We are so thankful to be able to have access to such incredible activities and opportunities to learn.

We are here til Sunday, and then we head back to Pucallpa! We hope you enjoy these photos from our time in the jungle 🙂
