Peru Day 11… Amazon

The one thing I will remember the most about this trip is the vibrancy of the children…

Even though there are so many natural dangers in these jungle, the children are still enjoying themselves as they should – as children…

Fear has a whole new meaning to these people…

While in North America in civilzation, we fear the mundane… We fear the simplist of change… Whether it is taking a new route to work, trying a delicacy we have never tried, or simply making a new friend…

We are creatures of comfort…

But in the jungle, there is no comfort… Only the will to survive…

And with this will, living with change is but a necessity…

I’m reminded by the words, “It’s not the strong that survive, but the most adaptable.”

Until I watched the kids play in the jungle, those words never meant more true…
