The last few weeks at Taricaya have been busy as usual and with the floods a distant memory we have been able to push on in many of our projects and the results have been very rewarding.
It seems just a few days ago that I was writing my latest from the jungles of Amazonian Peru but two months have just flown by and it is time to give you all the latest from Taricaya and our recovery from the disastrous floods of February this year.
My apologies for the delay in getting you the latest news from the Peruvian Amazon but as you will soon discover 2014 has not been the kindest to us over the last few weeks.
