Postscript: On the return flight to Miami, my luggage is searched behind closed doors by U.S. Customs. When it is returned to me (too late to be checked for a connecting flight), three yellow feathers, dropped by Yanomamo children on the grassy landing strip in Parima and picked up as a souvenir, are missing from my bag.
