Hi MattJela~Since you guys have been checking out Ecuador, Ive been researching too. Found a book entitled,"Los Viejos", by Grace Halsell. It's about her going to stay among the Vilcabambans in 1974. Cool! She mentions a very curative plant, called Matico. In her book she talks about a man injured in a fall who stays hospitalized for months, 'til he is treated with Matico, and within DAYS he recovers! Thought you might want to check into it.
Love the insights and sharing of your beautiful selves with all of us! {Loved the cartoon (Jungle Book?)you spliced in upon you and Angela's reunion too!} Awesome! Whoo hoo!
Love is All...Peace Everything Else!!! Rawk On! Love, Amanda & Will Thompson, St. Pete, Fl.

I think I would have to pass on eating bugs.
Would only eat them as a last resort.

The monkey was pretty funny I think he wanted you to let him free.

I love your videos, but it was heartbreaking to see the dog and monkey tied up..so unfair.

I agree with anonymous, why in the jungle are the animals chained up??

Thank you Amandasoarsfree,
I have been searching for the the book you mentioned, Los Viejos- I read it years ago, remembered the title but not the author. It is an amazing book written by an academic but superbly entertaining due to the personalities of the viejos profiled- some in their 120s and beyond and still libidinous, vivacious and irreverent. A 134 year old man propositions the author, is turned down, and goes to a prostitute instead. The book demonstrates how this agrarian community can live at high altitude, be very active physically, eat a virtually all-vegetarian diet, stay mentally and spiritually young and live way past the century mark. When the book was being researched in the 70s, however, white sugar was beginning to be available to the viejos and I guess that kind of poison is how modern societies thin the herd so to speak.
