Jesse has been posting some awesome photos on her FB, but most have been of her trip to Sarayaku to build a kiln for Rebekah. I stole some of her photos from that part of the trip as well as some that she took while we were at the Arajuno Jungle Lodge. Many times on the trip, one of had our camera out and took photos, so the other did not take any photos.Jesse had these great photos of our authentic Indigenous meal we ate these palm beetles after playing with them first.

Tom showing us around his jungle property - explaining how the turtles lay their eggs on the beach.
Tom's pond where he grows fish and turtles. A turtle from his pond. We all carefully played with it, but did not eat it. Tom fitted us out with jungle boots for our hike the next day. and William taking us on the jungle hike. View of property from a little ways up the mountain. Our room was in the wood building on the right.
These last few pics are from Jesse's earlier trip to Sarayaku
with her professors.
And several photos of Rebekah and her lady potters.Notice the hammocks in the background. Jesse said the ladies would take a machete to sharpen a long stick and then make a quick hammock with sheets to keep their babies happy while they worked. She also said that working with the ladies was like being at a quilting bee - all the ladies were giggling and visiting.
