Come with me to Peru, Part 2

A belated continuation of my travels to Manu National Park in Peru.


Me posing with a wild tagua palm. I was so, so thrilled to be able to see tagua in its native habitat and to get the chance to learn so much more about it.

A raw tagua nut – still in liquid state. And my blue dyed avatar hands. The dye was from a native fruit - a really interesting material. The fruit juices were clear when we put them on - in a few hours the dyes reacted with our skin and turned us deep indigo blue. Everywhere. It was supposed to last 2-3 days but instead lingered over a week - making going through customs/security to get back into the U.S. quite entertaining.
Lots more photos under the cut!Collapse )
