After a superb breakfast, we visited the Amazonas community. Here, we had a great time watching and experiencing firsthand how people live nowadays in the Amazonia. Our visitors marveled at how little things in life that we take from granted can mean so much for other people in a different environment.
The highlight of this cultural visit was a brief but emotional encounter with a welcoming committee formed by Minga Peru. The latter is a non-profit organization, founded in 1998, that has as a mission the promotion of social justice and human dignity for women and families in the remote rural areas of the Peruvian Amazon. They have been developing various projects in the area, technically training women and community members in agroforestry, crop cultivation and the construction and management of fish ponds has proofed to be invaluable to increase the economical sustainability of many people.
In the early afternoon we disembarked for our next visitors’ site, Clavero Lake. We started the afternoon’s activities by swimming in this remote lake. After that, we came back just in time to go on a skiff ride around the lake and in a couple of nearby small streams. We saw a lot of wildlife including three-toed sloths, many bird species, pygmy marmosets, green iguanas, etc.
We came back to ship at sunset with a fiery red sky as our companion. The scenery was spectacular!
