Less than three weeks ago I was riding in a dug-out canoe on a river in Panama, making my way to this beautiful little village.
It seems more like months ago. When you come back to work, throwing yourself back into the efforts and concerns of your regular life, special places like this seem so out of reach… so far away… so long ago.
And these photos are the ones I accidentally deleted. These and so many more. Last night when our friend brought the camera card back to us, all the “corrupted files” somehow restored, I was grinning from ear to ear! I marvel at our world. On the banks of this river, these people enjoy their primitive lifestyle – which they so graciously shared with us that day… and at the same time, there are people who can take a little computer chip and manipulate it like magic. Thank you to the Embera, and thank you to Jordan!
Gary always does such a beautiful job finding just the right moment for taking a photo.
I just had to share some scenes from this gorgeous day. The colors couldn’t have been brighter, the fish couldn’t have been more delicious, the hospitality couldn’t have been more genuine.
