Before heading to Proyecto Horizonte for the day at Kilometer 10, I decided to stop short at Kilometer 9. I walked on a few train tracks before heading down toward the river. This area was quite interesting. Locals made a stone figuration and layered it with coca leaves. Then they set the leaves on fire to celebrate some cultural tradition. Colorful clothes were being hung to dry after a wash, while children took baths in the river. Older men and women relaxed and talked. It seemed like a local rest stop. On local came up to me because he saw that I was taking pictures. I thought that I might have been bothering them, but he welcomed me. He could clearly tell that I was a foreigner but he was very kind, shook my hand and let me on my way.
