arauca, one would hardly realize that this is a science forums site, given some of your posts.

si es verdad, soy cafe con leche. mi madre es ruso, y mi padre es moreno. Pero me entere de que soy la mitad negro cuando estaba en la secundaria. Y a proposito, tu eres de la ciudad de arauca? o tu nombre se refiere al nombre del pajaro? yo vivia alla y es por eso que tengo curiosidad.
that will be my last post solely in spanish because the spanish community is very small on here LOL
I ran the above through a translator and got below.
if it is truth, I am white coffee. my mother is Russian, and my father is brown. But it finds out to me that I am black half when was in the secondary one. And on purpose, your you are of the city of Araucan? or your name talks about the name of the bird? I vivia and is there why I have curiosity.
I tried to delete a duplicate message and after pressing the edit/delete button there was no delete option. Anyone know how to delete? this slow canadian internet is at fault for the double send.
Lol Google translate is something else! it is like asking a spanish translator to come into work christmas eve when he is drunk. a proposito means "by the way" among many other errors. I will admit I learned spanish completely through google translate, but with figuring out how short or long to keep the phrases translated and what is wrong and right.
Google as language teacher. Now I've heard everything.Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!

It's true. I learn languages solely by reading or watching programs and translating as I go. Maybe you have noticed that english language is so complicated, the average english native speaker can remember many times they or someone else had to verify how to spell a word, especially when under pressure at work. well I now use google translate more often as a convenient tool as spanish to english to confirm spelling of a difficult english word than I do to translate TO english from spanish because that language is so much easier than english once you have learned it. wierd but true. I am sure arauca would agree!
You ID name wouldn't have anything to do with the video below would it?
Along the Rio Napo, Peru
yes it is based on that river!
that is where I am going in 2 weeks. I am going to one of the most remote parts the Amazon rainforest to spend the winter, live in an amerindian village and study/take photos of plants and animals. The rio Napo is that region. I asked arauca a similar question in spanish about her name.
In that case do us all a favor. When you get back please post the best of the pictures you take and if you need help with that PM me.
ok sure I will do that. It is no suprise people will be amazed by what I am trying to do and where i am doing it. People here at places like the bank are very interested in hearing about it, while they will be bored working in Canada all winter! After readin about amazing info about the region Í am doing, I found out how probale it will be to photagraph new species. Even new birds never seen before await in the trees. new monkey species too.
actually, funny thing is, there is internet in a village nearby called "santa clotilde". yes i said it is remote,but everywhere has internet these days! I can post from there when i get the chance.
I was going to ask if you were going to have internet access. That sounds very interesting. You can take pictures and then get quick feedback and comments that might enhance your experience. I take it you are still fairly young and mobile to be taking a trip like that? Does it also have anything to do education or some work you are being paid for?
I am only 22 and I am not doing it for work or school, well not yet i am not. as i already lived in 3 countries in south america and found opportunities in all of them, just did not like the countries, I will do the same thing at rio napo, peru, look for a new lifestyle involving nature and expect to like it this time! I just payed cheap price for a flight all the way into the Amazon and plan to fish (lots there to catch) and live like the locals. 5 dollars that does not suffise for lunch here at mcdonalds buys what you need for a few days there. I googled many other people that have done this kind of thing for much of there life. It makes life so much more enriching once it leeds to some kind of career such as maybe growing medicinal plants from there with great value as remedy against common disease.
Well try not to get any parasites while your there. Have you ever watched that program "The Monsters Inside Me"? Nasty little buggers, hard to diagnose and hard to treat when you know what you have.
No i never watched it I have watched a lot of things similar though. One of the most important things i have been studying is medicinal plants of the Amazon that grow there. I have learned about so many highly effective plants agains bacteria, viruses and parasites. the bark, leaves or roots of these plants contain potentent phytochemicals agains pathogens while causing no side effects when used properly in small doses. I have memorised the scientific names and the appearance of moe than 50 plants highly valuable as effective rainforest cures to be boiled when there. hopefully i will never need to use them! I bought a very large bug net for sleeping at night time hours when insects come out.
uh oh! That just reminds me. In the village it is not just about jungle, they have power in the evening from 6-11 and they love to party! with latin and salsa music at night. One needs enjoyment with modern twist when available while living in the rainforest. that means when i am in the village and take part the bugs will be there too. I better burn some of those bug repellant leaves while we dance in the night! one of the best sentense you can try to remember in the Amazon rainforest is: Nature provides many dangers, but also provides all solutions to them, plus those dangers from the outside which means you just need to find them and put them to work. diseases, snake bites and injuries all have plant cures for them nearby with cancers, stress ect being civilised health threats best treated by rainforest remedies. I did see a program about people giving up on western medicine taking their problems to the rainforest and getting it cured right up!
Do you know what the average life span is in the area you will be staying in? Just saying they might not be that great at curing all their infectious problems as you believe. Anyway, the best policy is not to get infected in the first place. Just be aware of any possible problems ahead of time, then do your best to avoid those problems. Other than that, have the best time you can have.
