Spending a day and night unconscious in a mud trail that ran along the river wasn't your idea of a good time. You did feel better for it though, all well that ends well. Isn't that how the saying goes? Unsure if you would be lucky enough to find another source of water and not wanting to repeat yesterday. You take the option of following the river. For anyone who lived in this fucking heat would live along it for the same reasons you were following it. Water was a necessity for live and this heat was cruel and you needed it more here more than ever.
You didn't need to cut down any foliage along the rivers edge either. You needn't waste any of your energy. A bit hungry you took the time to eye your surroundings for fruit trees or nuts. It's a jungle so at least there should be some bananas? Feeling better with the security of a water source you walk along with ease. Things were looking up. You will get home.
