Documenting nature in the Amazon through photographs and sketches

Piranhas at the market

This month’s meeting of the Photography group was at the recently inaugurated market in Manaus.  It is a very nice market, the construction is from the colonial times, with material brought from England and France.  The crafts section was my favorite, and the most colorful one. I found some piranhas there.  The fruit and veggie section had just a few stands, but with lots of different herbs, dried and fresh. We got jambu for today’s lunch, pato no tucupi.
