Rain forest – jungle

The eastern part of  Ecuador is rain forest a part of the Amazon basin. Several tribes of indigenous people live there in their traditional ways. But they have found oil deposits under the forest, and that has led to great problems and most of the tribes resist exploration on their area.                    We crossed the eastern range and came to the city of Puyo in the jungle.We met a representative for a tribe who told stories about contact with oil companies and government, not all of them nice.
