After spending half a day fishing far upriver from the village, this young man takes a break in an un-occupied, thatched-roofed jungle camp along the river bank. In the bush, existing shelters are for common use as a place to cook or rest. They are built on raised platforms that offer protection against wild animals and ground-based insects.
