Location City -  Palumeu
State -  MIDDLE OF NOWHERE
Country - Suriname   Suriname
About The surroundings of Palumeu are hided in the
untouched rainforest in one of the most
Southernest contactable spots of Surinam.
In the village Palumeu approximately 200 Indians live.
There are two different tribes, the Trio's and
Wajana's. In spite of difference in language
these tribes live together peacefully.
To the head of the community the captain stands.
With some assistents (basja's) he controls the village.

Its just the way they live, in peace
and harmony, something we could learn from!

Have a wonderful week, be well! xxJen

We can learn so much from what is in nature,
doesnt matter if its in the jungle or in the middle of the city, between millions of others, dont you think so??? As I said I think in lonelyness is our biggest enemy these days,
sharing isnt a issue anymore, we all want all
for ourselves.....But that you learn if you travel too, to see different cultures, I wish I was younger and could do more in these African
countries, hopefully our younger generation will
learn from us and do it even better:)))
For now lets enjoy and absorbe the good things of life, positivity, friendship!! Yeahhhhhhh!!!!
Slaap lekker mijn lieve vriendin, sweet dreams,
dikke kus, Jenxx

Have sweet dreams my sweet Jen and no worries, I am better already :)
Big kiss and sweet dreams.
Julie.

I am so happy you believe and can see in what I try to say, if these tribes can live together
and even enjoy us to come and see their culture
and habits, making their own bread, looking how they did brow the beer even:)))
We live in a European community where there is so much stress, murder, unpatience, unhappyness, jealousie, people not even knowing their own neighbours....and most of all lonelyness.... terrible!!!
Happy you do understand me, thanks for talking my dear, be well, Jenxx

Wonderful capture and wonderful about as usual.. I can see what you are trying to say about peace. The people are lucky and I feel good that there are places where harmony is still present. It's sad of hearing news also in the other parts of this continent where it is completely the opposite.,, where women are abused and villages are abandoned due to fear... really a true sad reality.
thanks for sharing and the reflection for the soul.
regards..
