Solange Da Silva Correia prepares her family's fish dinner by the light of an oil lamp at the kitchen window of their riverside farmhouse near the town of Caviana, Amazonas, Brazil.

She is 49 years of age; 5 feet 2.5 inches tall; and 168 pounds.  With no indoor plumbing, she tackles anything messy on an overhanging counter, letting chickens and dogs clean up the scraps below.
