*Com legenda em Português*
After 126 days and 2345km (1457miles) we arrived in Santarém. Our time amongst the Amazonian people, known as ‘caboclos’, has been magical. This teaser video gives a glimpse into life on the river and some of the stories we’ve been gathering.
A very special thank you to our equipment sponsors and all the kind folks whose donations are helping to keep our voyage across Brazil going. You can find out how to support the expedition here.
We hope you all enjoy the video and until the next time,
