A Better View of the Moon – RoseAnna Mueller – Venezuela 2002

My husband and I had taken a trip on the Rio Cauro in Venezuela. We were camped at a campsite that was owned and maintained by the local Yakuona tribe. They brought food and water to the campsite along the river, but mostly stayed out of sight. One evening I followed a path into the jungle to get a better look at the full moon. I came upon a tribesman who asked what I was doing there, and  if I had lost my way and needed help. I replied that I had taken the walk so I could have a better look at the moon. He asked, “Why, don’t you have a moon where you live?”
