Bom Dia, da casa de Eduardo!

Eduardo's House Cuiaba

Eduardo, the owner of the Jaguar Ecological Reserve, picked us up earlier this afternoon from the Ciuaba Airport and treated us to a wonderful lunch of rice and beans at his house.  We’re hitting the ground running, with big talks of water towers, wells, pumps, and filters already being thrown about in Portuguese and English.  We are now waiting on a taxi to come and pick us up to take us to Pocone, a city of about 20,000 people on the northern edge of the Pantanal.


[May 6th]

Today in Pocone we collected information and estimates on our materials and supplies for the water system.  We went to a few construction stores and asked about prices and materials.  Nothing was bought today.  Once Ethan comes down with the newly bought bus tomorrow, we will buy our materials and make our way down to the Eco Lodge tomorrow!
