Name: Marina de Brito
Job: Assistant Producer
Luxury item: Radio 4 podcasts and my Indian music collection on my MP3 player.
Phobia: Getting homesick and mosquito bites.
Will miss: Russell and just being at home.
Looking forward to: Meeting lots of Amazon river people and sharing their riverside lives as well as making new friends. Lying on a hammock, on a boat travelling down river.
Dreading: Not being able to communicate with the river people in remote communities because of the differences between my Portuguese, from Portugal, and their Brazilian Portuguese. Hopefully it won't happen!
