Natives from remote villages bring products to market.

Carlene thinks big.

With no refrigeration, chickens need to be sold and consumed in a timely manner.

We took a ride around town in a MotoKar taxy.  In Iquitos and Nauta autos were extremely rare.  Motorcycles and MotoKars are the main mode of transportation.

Erik came back from the market with a basket full of fruits that grow only in the Amazon and are not exported.

He explained them gave us samples.  They were unusual and delicious.
