I'm sorry to say that I didn't get one picture of the invited guests and the wonderful food served to us. I was feeling a bit zeroed out from all the adventures of getting to party. Then too, I had to get some food in my stomach and rehydrate myself with plenty of cold beer. After this, off I went to take some pictures of the place our hosts call the maloca (roundhouse). What impressed me the most was the number of beehives I found on the premise. Dona Eunice Sena, who coordinates the project, told me that they have more than a hundred hives of the non-stinging variety of bees. The ones with stingers are kept further out into the woods. Check out some of these hives.
