Dinis Marques, the subject of the previous post, just sent me incredible photos of him in Chamanculo in 1965. Images of that place during that time are not easy to come by. More after the jump. If you’re curious what Dinis has been up to in recent years, see this, this, and this. We’ll get to Dinis in wartime and in revolution in posts to come.

Generous support for the research that allowed me to write Hotel Universo has come from the Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian and a Fulbright Program grant sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Dept. of State and administered by the Institute of International Education.
