dc.description.abstractenOn a recent excursion to Chapada dos Guimarães to photograph wildlife, I had the good fortune to encounter a young Bororo man who was now living near the town of that name. He offered to show me a special waterfall near his home. We descended through the brush to a beautiful scene. The waterfall cascaded some ten meters to a shallow pool. The young man slipped off his shorts and plunged under the waterfall. He whooped and called me to join him, so I did. I imitated his joyful Bororo whoop and we both roared with laughter. The water in that pristine place was cool and wonderful. It was a precious moment.en_US
