    Wildlife always are my favorites, but I was fascinated by the Yawalapiti and wanted to know more. Didn’t find much actual info on the internet, but stumbled on some wonderful pix: Amazing people!

    One big difference between Brazil and the US is the areas where you have left indigenous people to live traditional lives undisturbed and respected. I’m sorry we have not done the same, much to our shame. It’s a real disgrace. I’ve had the privilege of friendship with some Native Americans (as we now call them) which makes me feel that shame even more.

    OK, now for the wildlife. Can’t pick a favoritebut I think it’s between the frog and the Yellow- tufted Dacnis. Both quite improbable!

    One day to go. We made it!

      Great picture Mary, thanks so much. :)
      I like that the have in most part been left in peace…Brazil possible has more inaccessible areas than the US maybe thats help…they are under some thread in a few regions and the want to build a huge dam which would flood there land, sad situation, progress against tradition, constant battle I suppose.
      Nearly didn’t make it today it’s just gone 9pm when I posted ‘Y’ but the internet…I’m going to an internet cafe to catch up on my blog hopping. See you then. :) It’s taken this long to get it to load to reply to your comment!! Thanks Mary.xoxox.

    Wonderful Maggie. Your pictures always fascinate me and you always bring such a variety. The frog is an amazing colour/pattern and the birds beautiful but for once it’s the people that caught my attention. What an astounding Country you’ve made your home in.

    I love the look of that tribe; I read a book about tribes years ago and their untouched by modern values are interesting.

    Oh, and awesome frog!

      The tribes utterly fascinate me too, sadly people keep trying to civilise them and one tribe is under serious threat because they can’t fight the infections that well meaning souls carry into the camps, so sad…very awesome frog, some mad coloured animals here Mother Nature must have made Brazil and magic mushrooms at the same time. Cheers. :)

    That night sky is stunning, I could sit and stare at that and happily lose all track of time.

    Hi Maggie .. I noted your comment about the tribes – as we did hundreds of years ago … that poison dart frog is sure off-putting – let alone its name! Love the stories behind the photos …

    Cheers Hilary
