Education in the Jungle
I would never have believed it to be possible that after more than 3 hours of walking in the middle of the jungle, from nowhere, a sight such as the following would appear.
A big school with a basketball/soccer court. Empty because of Christmas holidays, and while no one were to be seen anywhere around the school, the walk led to a small village full of children, part of the local Yagua tribe.
The local school with internet(!!!) connection and a couple of working computers. Our guide Hernando below to the right (me to the left)...
and the rest of the school's playground.
Other beautiful sights included these siblings that suddenly appeared when we were accompanying a field work of a different character, carried out by my brother-in-law.
