May 01, 2019 - Delfin II
Today we had the special opportunity to visit a small community adjacent to the San Jorge River. It is an eye-opening experience to get to visit the people who live in such remote areas. It is fascinating to see how closely they have learned to live with their environment, and how little they need to be happy. They received us with open arms and big smiles. We got the chance to see their homes, the school, and to learn about what they are doing to improve their living through a local organization called Minga Peru.
Later in the morning and afternoon we visited and explored more of the many tributaries of the Amazon. One of the big highlights for today was to see one of the smallest primates in the world, the pygmy marmoset. The little monkeys posed for us among the open branches and close to the water.
