The Indian Village
 in the Jungle
The Secoya Indians were great hosts as we visited their jungle
village.  This tribe still lives in traditional thatched huts, built
well above the expected high water levels.  But the modern
world intrudes, such as the device in this picture for
converting sunlight into electricity.
How the Secoya dress shows the direction in which things
are moving.  The older man on the left is wearing
traditional garb.  Not so for the younger man in shorts.
Inside a hut I found this odd couple, both of whom
were pets.  The cat's playmate is a Clown Monkey.
