And Collecting Fruit

A companion to yesterday's post (see Counting Uvos). Grainy, black and white print shows Umberto Pacaya (see Umberto Pacaya) and me (on the left) standing in front of a large capinuri tree (Maquira coriacea (Karsten) C.C. Berg) in the flooded forest behind Supay cocha (see Caño Supay) in the Peruvian Amazon. Same clunky, heavy, yet locally-produced, rubber boots. Equally great haircut. Same large machete, carried with comparable insouciance. A magical time and place for studying tropical trees.[NOTE: I still have the machete, an authentic Collins purchased in Mexico].
