Brazil then, tropical forests, complete assault on his being, plants, birds, rotting vegetation, many species, biodoversity

Brazil now, lots of forrest gone, now streets, cars, different experience, no nature, humans seperated from nature, 1,5 hr drive away from coast before forest

indians,tierra del fuego

then, common origins, lots of natives, natives, in harmony with nature, animals and humans one origin, convert them to christianity, mission failed, somebody started a mission and succeeded, the end of native, all life interconnected
