Here, Fishy Fishy Fishy!

As you can imagine, everyone who lives along the Amazon River fishes. Most of the village men fish to support their families. We saw fish, nets and boats everywhere we went. The fishing there hasn't changed in centuries. One or two men sit in a canoe, cast a net into the water and then haul in their catch by hand. Some of my team members also tried their hands at fishing. Here's Blake with his first catch of the trip.

Yes, that is a piranha.
And yes, he caught it off the side of our boat.


Below, the locals get ready for lunch.

I like how Blake is wearing a Red Cross t-shirt while holding the piranha.
