Panama: Embera Indian Lady with Baby Quapi

After long drive back to Darien, got to sleep at 0100. Up at 0530 and back into the jungle.

Before getting into the jungle proper, we came through this Embera Indian village. An Embera woman seemed to have a monkey. As we got closer, we saw that it was a baby. We said good morning and chatted.

I asked where is its mother. Embera lady said she found the baby alone and “I am its mother now,” she said through interpreter.

We continued on. And a few minutes later found a logging truck overturned. I will tell that story next.
