In August 2015 I spent four days on a freight boat traveling up Rio Paraguay. This collections shows some moments of the journey on the Aquidaban, which is a floating supermarket as well as the only connection to the outside world for many indigenous Paraguayan communities.

The Aquidaban keeps making its way upstream. On day three the boat is headed to Fuerte Olimpo, the last bigger settlement before Bahia Negra
