This adventure travel began actually with one of these annoying spam emails that all of you know. A tour operator was advertising for his travels through Brazil. Our prejudices about this land prevented us to visit it until than: densely populated cities, criminality, favelas and unspectacular landscapes. Therefore we were just about to through the email to the garbage when a picture caught our attention: that of a jaguar. Right! Aren't this wild cats living in Brazil? Was it the Amazonas or this huge swamp area in the southwest? With these thoughts we started to look for a more thorough information about Brazil and our plans began. They ended with a six week adventure targeted to discover the past and present environment of the jaguar. This huge land taught us a valuable lesson: leaving our preconceptions behind us we experienced a beautiful Brazil full of surprises of the beaten tracks.
