Nice muddy scene. How is it possible to live there. Is this an existing road ?

Eva Lewitus on June 19, 2012

Yes, this is an existing road. This can happen in the rainy season, and yes, people live here. Although I took the Shipibo series in 1970, it still is like this. The little village is now a bigger town with "real" houses, but further into the jungle, you can still find Shipibos living like they did years ago.

cleans the dirt instead of snow, like 29 :-)

Right you are, Ondra. There is never any snow there!
