The riverman cuts his engine and noses the boat into the bank. "Here?" you ask. It's a tangle of jungle just like everywhere else.

He nods and tosses your bag out onto a bare patch of ground. The beginning of a path, you realize. You step cautiously out of the boat. After the roar of the outboard engine, the jungle seems fiercely silent.

The engine sputters into life again. "Bzz bzz!" the man calls. The boat spins and heads off downstream. In less than a minute you can no longer hear it. ContinueLike the sun, the sky, the land and everything else, it has been swallowed up by the Amazon jungle.
