Sound of the Amazon

Ok so I haven't really posted since new years... blame it on Hawaii ok? I've been too busy surfing and camping. But now I've finally returned to the lights of my computer screen to post this video from my time in the Amazon jungle. The little girl is part of the family I stayed with in a tiny village. Everything revolves around the river there. You bathe in it, wash your clothes and dishes, and even drink it. It tasted a bit funny at first but believe it or not I never go sick. My favorite thing there was paddling up river in the family's little dug out canoe and drifting back fishing for piranha. Those little suckers are so feisty and so much fun to fish for. We had long wooden sticks with finishing line, a hook and meat for bait. They're not bad eating either!
