BoliviaAfter a couple of hours on the river, we beached the rafts to do some fishing using the Tacana fishing method.

BoliviaThe fishing line is on a board that is unwound, then tossed out into the water. The bait are small fish.
The Tacana do not bother with poles.

Lunch At One of The Tacana Communities   1 comment

BoliviaTom, Matt and Ty waiting for lunch to be served in the community meeting room. That’s my Amazon hat where I would be.

BoliviaTom, Matt, Ty and Pedro with my hat. The food was delicious,
I know because I was the one doing the eating, not my hat.

BoliviaThis is Pedro’s community.

BoliviaAfter lunch, we hiked through the jungle and a nearby pasture
where we would meet our supply boat and ready the balsa wood rafts
for the next phase of our Madidi adventure.
