Luis Romero carries boards of red cedar (also known as spanish cedar) which were cut up the month before. Each board weighs 45 kilos. Donkeys will take over and carry the wood to the river bank then it will be brought upstream in big iron canoes. The  wood traffickers can only enter into the primary forest a few miles, that is a four hour walk. Further forward it would be too dangerous.
