Late yesterday afternoon, I returned from a wonderful, memorable week in the jungle city of Aucayacu. I have so many stories and pictures to share. But, I thought I would start with a simple selection of market shots.
The city of Aucayacu has no supermarket. There are small corner stores and then the market where you would buy meats, fruits, vegetables along with clothes, cleaning products and haircuts. I was on a search for sachapapa because I had heard that the yearly harvest had arrived. There were none to be found, but I ran across some other interesting things!
Dale Dale is another root which is boiled, peeled and eaten.
