"It’s likely, as we embark on our journey after the stories of the jungle, we might discover ourselves along the way. Our ingrained, fanciful ideas about everything we associate with the jungle world will soon diminish, and we will find the need to dig deeper to discover the true beauty. We enter the rainforest in anticipation of pleasant distractions and amusement, but already with the first steps we feel that if we proceed further, the rays of sunlight that cut through the tree crowns high above us will slowly drown in the impenetrable thicket and then, little by little, disappear completely in its darkness. What awaits us after? A quest to find the right path, exploration, and more than one adventure. The unseen, watchful eyes will be fixed upon us; and our eyes that may have forgotten how to observe the world around us will learn to see through the twilight. The rhythm and pulse of the rainforest, the intuition of our senses, and the rediscovered order. This voyage through the jungle will be a journey of self-discovery. Will you join us on it?"
