Family Fishing

While visiting the native community of Yomibato, one early morning we accompanied two men to fish, Jaime and Cesar who guided us until we reached a small stream. They have a special plant called Barbasco. A plant with its roots that are large and toxic enough to stun fish. Using rocks, they mashed the root into pulp, then waded into the stream, dunked the pulp and waited for the fish. Suddenly the whole families of both men appeared to help! Wives, children, grandmother...ect. This is Isabel.
