Jungle Magic in Pictures

I recently wrote this reflection on my adventures in the Peruvian Amazon, and my reconnection with special friends from those days. Here are some vintage photos from the jungle archives, taken by Jose Choy-Sanchez, Rio Ucayali, 1999-2000! And Jose sends this, too, a little jungle background music to set the tone.
