... it. The lodge is built on wooden supports, and all transport is by small boats with a very shallow draft, and powered either with a tiny outboard motor attached to a long handle—to make it easy to swivel it away from plants and tree limbs in the river—or by paddles.
You are always close to the river, and the villagers here all live from the river, catching fresh water fish, collecting edible plants, animals, and insects from the trees, or showing ...
