This summer, I found myself in a place that I have previously only dreamt about — the heart of the Amazon rainforest. At first, my preparation for traveling as part of a group delegation focusing on environmental and social justice issues in the region of the Yasuni, Ecuador, seemed to be a relatively straightforward undertaking.
