Peru Part 3: The Amazon People

While we were on the river, we stopped at a few really small villages. We toured schools and markets and learned how the native people use vegetables to dye all of their textiles for their intricate weavings.

In one of the markets, we got to hold a baby sloth (named Theresa). She moved really slow and latched onto you with her long claws.

We stopped at a park ranger’s station and these little kids from the village brought their own little canoe across the stream to see us. The oldest was probably about 6 years old and they all knew how to paddle their own boats.
