Faces of the Amazon - Day 5
"What does the Amazon mean to me? ... I play with my friends. We play soccer. We play in the river."
At its heart, the story of the Brazilian Amazon is about the 21 million people who in some way or another call it home. Everyday from December 7 through 18 - coinciding with the Copenhagen climate change summit – I am introducing you to a new person who lives in the Brazilian Amazon and whom I came across during my most recent reporting trip to the area. This is the fifth installment of ‘Faces of the Amazon.’ To read the introductory blog post about this project, click here.
