Unbelievably sad, yet an absolutely necessary and practical means in giving the Huaorani people access to the modern world. The devastation of big oil along this road is horrifying, yet a journey here is an eye-opening and culturally enriching experience. I had the pleasure of riding in a chiva bus with both Moi Enomenga and Babe, the infamous Huao leader who has killed many a oil worker and fellow Huao alike. It's like the death road into the wild west, only once you get there, you're in one of the most biologically rich places on the planet. This is what "Avatar" was about. Both beautiful and deadly, and easily susceptible to exploitation.
