The good ship La Esmeralda - our home on the Amazon for eight days.
Our intrepid band of adventurers aboard La Esmeralda.
Our ship's crew.  Our guide is the man kneeling on the left.  He
has worked as a guide for the National Geographic Society, has
worked with the legendary Jacques Cousteau and is a veteran
of numerous other expeditions as well.  He was fabulous.
La Esmeralda's motor launch.  This is how we got around in the
jungle, in the Amazon's tributary streams.  We also used it to go
ashore to visit villages along the Amazon.
Amazon natives taking their produce to market.  The entire
family goes along, because the river voyage can take as long
as three to four months!
