Traveling and staying wirh producers of brasil nuts in the bolivian Amazon

In the time between 27th of december 18 and 6th of january 19 I had the rare opportunity to travel across and live with producers of brasil nuts. Besides the extraordinary possibilties of field recordings I got an insight of the hard but also rewarding work. Brasil nuts are not grown in plantations but collected in the rain forest itself. Several days of ship travel on the rio madre de dios had as much been part of the travel from Riberalta in Bolivia to Puerto Maldonado in Peru as night hikes acroos the rain forest to the camps of the gatheres.
