Update from the Peruvian Amazon

Hey, familia de Dragones!

Everyone is having a great time. Today we had an introductory walk and learned about Brazil nuts, cacao trees, and various curiosities of the Peruvian rainforest. After lunch, the Finca de las Piedras team (research center where we are staying) introduced themselves to our group. They talk to us about their field of study and the independent research projects they are currently conducting. Then Johana, co-founder of the place, told us about the organization’s work, research lines, etc. Afterward, the kids played volleyball. And after dinner, we had a night walk to see the various mammals and reptiles that inhabit the Finca’s territory.
