Boca De Valeria – the church, stilted houses and village.

We walked around the village. Everything was on stilts. In the rainy season the water rises. It’s very fertile and uncontrolled. – Until Bolsonaro sells it off!

We were a cash cow. Our arrival was like a carnival. There were stalls set up selling rubbish (no local crafts – all mass produced tat). There were boat trips to see the lilies and people wanting money for posing. They dressed their kids up in psuedo plastic costumes. They had animals for you to photograph.

They were giving the tourists a show.

Sad really – but behind the scenes you got a glimpse.
