Houses along the river

As we cruised along the Amazon, Marañón and Ucayal rivers we saw a variety of housing - some isolated houses and many small villages. Many of the houses if near the river bank are on stilts due to the huge variation in water height during the wet an dry seasons. The sign at one of the villages, Centro Poblado de San Regis, said it was founded in 1723.
