Surviving in a rainforest

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Life in a Rainforest After being dropped from 100m into the heart of the unexplored rainforest I was scared. Most of my resources had got lost or damaged during the fall and all I had was a litre of fresh water, one can of tinned pasta, a machete and a flare. The food and water should last me two-three days and the flare will be key to my rescue. I started to cut a train through the forest to find a place to shelter when I heard strange howling sounds.

Last night the sleep was horrible and I am now covered in red mosquito bites. The only good thing so far is that my fire is still going but I need more firewood to make is last longer.

I was on the emergent layer and I decided to take out my flare and plant it on the branch ( I know this could start a fire but it did not)?

This was the crew that dropped me the first place but I was too grateful to be mad so I happily got on and could not wait to get home. These three days had been the most tiring days of my life but now its back to London and chilling out at home. Athough I have to say the rainforest was breathtaking and these experiences will never be forgotten by me because they taught me how beautiful nature can be and how mankind is commiting a crime by destroying it but that?s another story. Goodbye for now ...read more.
