Hollywood may still be talking about Brad and Angie’s engagement, but it’s back to work for Angelina Jolie. Leaving behind Brad and their six children in the Galapagos Islands this weekend, Jolie made her way to the San Miguel River in Ecuador to visit Columbian refugees.

Replacing her former UN title, goodwill ambassador, with her new title as Special Envoy for the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, Jolie spent time with farmers and refugees in order to assess the displacement situation in the region. After speaking with a farmer whose goal is to aim for better nutrition with a self-sustainability project he is spearheading, Jolie will report back to the UN with an assessment of the situation. Ecuador currently hosts 56,000 refugees and 21,000 asylum-seekers.

Jolie made her trek through the rainforest sans make-up, wearing all black, including a pair of black rubber boots. During her trip, Jolie chose not to wear her new engagement ring from Pitt nor any other jewelry other than a simple wristwatch.

Along with her tour near the San Miguel River, Jolie capped off her visit to Ecuador with a meeting with Ecuador’s foreign minister, Ricardo Patino. This was Jolie’s first field visit as Special Envoy.
