I want to thank Emily and the contributors for a great newsletter. I
particulary enjoyed Tom Croat's account of their trip to Ecuador as it
brought back many memories of my trip down to Yawa Jee, a Shuar
community (and previous rainforest conservation project of my
organization). I remember the treacherous narrow roads (blocked halfway
down to Shell, I believe due to a landslide) and a jungle camping trip
we went on. I took some slides of that experience, so I can post them
up to share with others if anyone's interested.
