On my recent trip to Chocó, I learned how little infrastructure there really is in the department. We took this boat/canoe 6 hours up the river to arrive at the communities participating in the Lutheran World Federation project. As it was dry season and the river is very low, sometimes we hopped out of the boat to push it up the river. Photo by Curtis.
