Drifting to Market – Amazon Style!

We were on a small river boat in the upper reaches of the Amazon when we saw this family coming down the river on their way to market. They created the bamboo boat, then loaded it with fresh bananas which they hoped to sell. You can see the little fire where they cooked their meals and boiled water for their exceptional coffee.

They hoped to sell the raft after the sold all of their bananas, and hitch a ride back up the river to their home.
