Climbing for Guaba

By Kirk Siegler | October 22, 2015 | Ecuador

We were touring a farm along the Aguarico River in the Ecuadorian Amazon. But nearby I found this teenage boy climbing for guaba, a delicious wild fruit. There probably isn’t the bandwidth to post the second photo of it cut open (with a machete). But trust me, it’s delicioso.
