In good spirits and with a lot of energy, you pick up your backpack and supplies and venture into the marshes. After the first 5 minutes of uneventful walking you come to your first crossroads.
The vegetation has grown more lush, taking on the look of a jungle. Trees and ferns are everywhere, vines are dangling down and the sound of chirping, buzzing and slithering is all around you. The path is still well-maintained and easy to follow. To the left, it heads west, weaving through trees and bushes. To the right, much the same, it continues on to the east. And to the north, straight ahead it leads deeper into the swamp, the vegetation becoming denser. 

Turn left to the west.
Turn right to the east.
Keep on heading north.
