Ecuador trip 2014

 

  In March of 2014 I went on a 3 week trip to Ecuador and experience a sacred ceremony with the Secoya tribe in there traditional territory of la Garta Cocha which is the farthest east of Ecuador along the Peruvian Border. We started in Quito and traveled by bus for one day and a half with a 7 hour mudslide delay. Then by canoe for one day. We spent 6 days doing ceremony and exploring the jungle through hikes and boat rides. 

  After the trip to the jungle I went to the town of Tena home of Guayusa tea, which comes from the guayusa tree. I helped teach the Mamallacta family of the Kichwa tribe how to do basic tree climbing. 

Here are some of the Awesome pictures from that Adventure.
