What not to watch (when eating your tea)

1. ‘What To Eat Now’: you’ll get food envy. (But at least, unless you’re very unlucky, you won’t have been christened Valentine.)

2. ‘Amazon’: you may be confronted by recurrent images of Bruce Parry and members of the Achuar tribe partaking in purging rituals which involve copious quantities of liquid vomit.

The voice of experience has spoken…

I missed the former, but was very much tucking into my tea when mr. parry and the tribe went about their alarming rituals. When he visited the oil town and tut-tutted at how much the traditional way of life had been lost, I so wanted a native to come out with some of that tea in one hand and a cup of coffee in the other:

"so mr parry, what will it be for breakfast....?"

The look on his face when he was confronted with yet another bowl of the stuff was an absolute picture.

Also worth questioning the fact that he too was bombing around on land and water in a petrol-driven vehicle...
