San Jorge Community & Clavero Lake

Aug 28, 2019 - Delfin II

This morning we visited the picturesque community of San Jorge were we had a chance to meet several of the locals, including a lot of kids. Part of the benefit of traveling is to experience, at least for a moment, the way other people live. It helps to put into perspective our own lives and gives us an insight on what daily ordeals they have to face. In the afternoon we edged a storm and explored deep into a caño that tributes to Clavero Lake. It’s not a true lake, but rather it’s part of the Ucayali that is now cut off from the main river by the constant changes produced by the accumulation of sediments.
