Postcards from readers: Happiness in reserve

The photographer: Zoya Khan, 13, of Folsom

Behind the lens: On my second sabbatical from Intel this summer, my family spent a week in the Mamirauá Reserve in the Amazon. The Uakari floating lodge is a shining example of community-based ecotourism. This picture was taken by my 13-year-old daughter on a visit to a local village. She was fascinated by the native children enjoying their unique surroundings.
