Scanned form a 6x6 negative from May 1970
Homemade house with bamboo and thatched roof in Chazuta Peru
A happy family, with Grampa presiding. Smiles all around :-) Best wishes, Charlie
Yes, you are right, Charlie, they seem to be very happy, they had no electricity,no running water, but they didn´t need it! I hope that they are still happy, though after so many years "civilization" came to them.
By the way, I only now noticed that I made a mistake, this was in the jungle of Yarinacocha, and not in Chazuta.
A photo that seems of another era... In fact, "civilization" has brought many tourists to travel through the rainforest and the lake to see local wildlife.
This photo is around 40 years old, but I think you can still find little villages like this one in the Pucallpa region (At least I hope so)
