Logs of the Amazon

8 Nov

I couldn’t find an English translation for these types of trees, but in the past they were just used for cooking. Now they are used for making houses and fine furniture. It’s pretty impressive to see hundreds of these tied together and floating down the river. A shelter is set up on them, a motor attached for steering, and boats tie up to shuttle supplies back and forth for the long journey. Quite a different way of life.
