Our day began in Pucallpa, Peru, and ended in Masisea, a small village along the Amazon south of Pucallpa. It was another full day today, spent capturing some amazing interviews. We first visited a school in Neshuya, Peru, and later attended a talk by and interviewed Juan Silva, commandant of the Peru National Police and part of the anti-drug force there.
