live simply so others may simply live
Sinamaica Lagoon, situated along a notorious Venezuela/Colombia waterway used by narco-traffickers, is one of the last remaining ´floating villages´on earth, where habitants including indigenous "Añú" indians live in houses above water; and travel to work, school, etc. via wooden canoes or small motor boats. Life in the lagoon is currently threatened by social issues such as severe poverty, water contamination and global warming.
Happy Earth Day.
