I took this photo to capture the view from the dining room of the Yawanawa village. Slightly to the right of the frame hang a number of feather hair decorations made by the indigenous women of the community. I point them out to Papa, and remark that I had seen something similar in the Indigenous Museum in Brasilia and had wanted to buy one, but, alas, there was no gift shop. By coincidence, a few minutes later, the chief's wife presents me with the biggest and brightest of the collection as a parting gift. This is what is NOT in this photo.
I am walking behind Papa taking this photo. Behind me is a group of 5 to 7 elementary age boys. In my hair is the feather headpiece which the chief's wife has just given to me. In front of us is a helicopter. I want a photograph with the boys (who remind me of my Gyaan Ghar students) with the feathers hanging over my shoulder (which remind me of a parandi). But alas, we were late! And we needed a safety briefing before riding in the chopper. This is what is NOT in this photo.
