LIFE IN A RAINFOREST
Today we are driving up to Kampong Peta, a small village on the river.
We're going to get information from the local people,
see how they eat in the jungle,
where they get their water,
and how to survive in this environment.
We met locals in the village
that taught us knowledge, survival and trapping skills.
We did that to a couple of predators.
- ADRIEN BRODY, ACTOR - Blowpipe shooting skills.
Mosquitoes, huh? They never bite me.
- Because they know you? - Maybe.
Meeting the villagers who are born and raised
in complete isolation,
surrounded by tropical rainforest, it's humbling.
I got it.
In Siberia, they have villages in the middle of nowhere
where they grow everything. They have cows and they milk them
and they don't need to go anywhere.
Same with these people, they're happy where they are,
with what they have. It's very similar.
Just been for a swim.
It's so refreshing, it's been so humid and hot all day.
I haven't stopped sweating.
But before we went for a swim, one of the guys, Johnny,
he spotted some lads playing football
and said we should go and challenge them.
There were some big lads in their teens playing
so we opted not to challenge them. We went for the 6-year-old kids.
- MAC MACKENNEY, EXPEDITION LEADER - And still lost.
We gave it the best we could. It's a blinding place.
We lost to a bunch of...
- 4-year-olds. - 5-, 4-year-olds.
I don't think it was very good. It was fun though.
Yeah, it's been exciting.
Today has been a big adventure so I can't wait.
