Since I have returned to Lima and have access to both a functioning computer and fast internet, I have uploaded plenty of photographs from my 2 months in the Amazon jungle, at Puerto Alegria and Iquitos.
Here are just a sampling of what you will find on Flickr. (Be sure to check Flickr for the rest of the photos!)
Willinton, a 7 year old who is still learning Spanish. He speaks Tikuna.
Luis, who at one time was the youngest of the house, has now grown up.
Parading with the antorchas, for Peru’s Independence Day.
Jherry and Veronica, the directors of Puerto Alegria, along with Hox, Romario and me.
My brother Randy came to visit, and we learned how to drive a motorbike – something I have wanted to do for the past 2 years.
The three Comeque Coello brothers – Luis Enrique, Harold and Xavier, plus little Alvaro in the red.
Bryan and Dexter, two brothers who are nothing alike.
Rene, Mario and Leyner
Translating for Jherry
The 47 Girasoles boys, plus staff at Puerto Alegria.
Jacobo, God’s miracle from the Amazon Hope.
Jherry with the 18 high school boys that moved back to Iquitos to continue their studies in the city.
And, that was just a small sampling of what you will find on Flickr.
