TOWARDS THE HEART OF THE FOREST
The starting is: 14 hours sailing in a small ship ascending the Amazon River to take a huge tributary who brought us to a remote point in the middle of the jungle, from which you take out of this adventure.
The first contact with this wild and beautiful environment has been brutal. At the boat, we already have slept installing our hammocks on deck, enjoying the sight of the stars while the machine was earning miles for this huge river that sometimes is confused with the sea.
The atmosphere is awesome, because we are only four Catalans and Spaniards, surrounded by passionate people to experience strong worldwide. Here, almost no one speaks in terms of competition. Practically speaking only of the adventure of this race, namely the difficulties encountered, the bugs, how to adapt to life in the jungle, the problems of dehydration, etc., instead of the slope of classification or competition.
14 hours where we have already entered a world in extreme pain and extreme emotions in, where we will live for 8 days. 14 hours that we are disconnected from everything and we met many people dedicated to the race, to read and write a little, and above all, to relax and enjoy the beauty of the fierce Amazons.
Now we have no connection to the outside world. We no Internet, no phone and no satellite phone, then we take it, but we must avoid all nonessential weight in this race where we've already carried on all for many days. We can only send one email a day from the system of organization, which make use, whenever possible, to make a small text chronicling each stage, thus keeping the web updated daily.

DesprŔs d'un passeig amb golondrina per el port de Barcelona, lo millor es una visita al jardi botÓnic de Montju´c.
Molta sorta tot l'equip.
