I'm not putting these pictures in any other order. They are neither chronological in the film nor thematically organized, but I like the effect they have in this accidental order, so I'm out.

I got no more words to say about this, just know that Brother's Keeper is worth the watch if you get a chance to see it.

I'm working on a new blog at the moment-- it will consist mainly of my preparations for more research in Ecuador this summer and you can find it here. It will be more writing-based than this blog has been, no pressure to read all of the word-things that I post there, but it will also (hopefully) contain some interesting linguistic and cultural ideas as well, so feel free to follow me there if you're curious about my rainforest adventures from last summer and what I'll be planning to do this summer as well.
and here's a picture of me painted as an "urku warmi," since that's what this blog is all about.

Aswa, by the way, is the Lowland Quechua word for what is also commonly called chicha or manioc beer. It's the staple in Runa culture and is made from mashed up manioc (aka yuca, cassava, lumu) that has been mildly fermented. Tastes kind of like kombucha. Is also incredibly filling, which makes drinking lots as a sign of appreciation for the host more difficult.
