In the Steps of Christopher Columbus
"The main reason to visit this river is to meet the Wareo Indians, the small friendly people who live along the river bank. It is only a matter of time before they will be forced to change their way of life and conform to more "civilised" living. At the village about ten miles upriver there is a small school and a health clinic run by the Venezuelan government. As a result, some humbler settlements further upstream have been abandoned as the inhabitants have moved to be near the school and clinic."
