Photographer's Note

Taken in a Quechua Indian village in the Ecuadorian Amazon. A 10 hour bus ride from Quito, 3 hours in a truck, a couple of hours in a boat, a couple more hours in a canoe, and a (hot) 3 hour walk through the jungle to get to this little community. It was amazing to walk out of the jungle and into a clearing containing the dozen houses of a self contained and isolated village.
To communicate we had to take an interpreter as although we had a (small) smattering of Spanish, these people did not, Quechua being their primary language. The kids were fascinated by our presence and at at every turn there was usually someone shyly watching us.
I'm hard pressed to think of a more welcoming group of people anywhere!!!
