The scenes from what I call the "pig roast" (though really, it was boiled...) take place in Foreman's back yard, and there are also scenes in his mom's kitchen/dining area on the back porch of her house. This is a common arrangement - Iquitos is just a few degrees south of the equator, so it's pretty warm. You WANT an open area for cooking.
Before coming here Foreman sold the 2 pigs remaining from the 4 (one had died, one seen here he had killed and we enjoyed it immensely). He said they're too much trouble, and with the baby now he doesn't want the mess. Marleni keeps some chickens and ducks, for eggs and meat. The duck in the picture would hiss at me whenever I went to the outhouse in the middle of the night, so I wasn't sorry to dine on HIS flesh!
