Amazon Basin - Fruit Bowl

In the Amazon Basin, what gave me the biggest thrill was the incredible fruit. Camu camu, Ungarahui, Pitana, Garana, Bacuri and caju; so many I'd never seen or tasted before. Mangoes dropped from the trees! In such quantity, that after the first week of the season the locals didn't really pay attention to them pounding the rooftops or plopping onto the lawn. I saw them all as jewels. Even cutting a papaya for breakfast I did with joy and reverence...
