On November 9, I will start the biggest journey that I've ever attempted in my career, called Natütama. It means "The World Under Water" in Ticuna, a language spoken by approximately 40,000 people in Brazil, Peru and Colombia. I will travel around 2,500 miles by riverboat, journeying down the length of the Amazon River. I will sleep in hammocks, experience different cultures and languages, discover stories, and document the beauty of this magnificent river and the people who live on its banks. I will also work on research for an ongoing project about clean water and sanitation.

I'll document the journey on Instagram with photos and videos. Please follow me  @eliseucavalcante
