The Jungle of Europe Mud. Everywhere is mud. Tents and shacks shows up all around. Piles of trash pushed up as moraines around a muddy glacier tongue. In this dirty spot on the European map people lives. Nobody knows the exact number, but they are counted in thousands. The Jungle in Calais is a refugee camp made of itself. Hoping to get to England refugees and migrants are driven to this corner of France where ferries cross the Channel. Here they attempt to sneak themselves aboard the many trucks going to England. However, as the fences along the highways are erected and the control checks at the ferries are increased it is becoming harder and harder to get across. Meanwhile, the Jungle grows. Many have entirely given up hope of getting to the promised land. For them the short stop has become the end, and life in the tents has become their everyday. They are stuck here, in the mud of the Jungle.
