Floating along the Amazon River in north-eastern Peru. Many villages line the banks of the Amazon so you will always see loads of river traffic - often in tiny handcarved wooden canoes (dugout) such as this. These dugout canoes are usually made of marupa wood.
Steps carved into the dirt leading down to the river’s edge - having an early morning scrub!
Like most kids, the village kids LOVED to show off - doing cartwheels and jumping into the river!
A group of us spent some time walking through a village located on one of the many tributaries located off the Amazon River.
I just loved this kid - so deep in thought.
