The mixture is what is most alien about the woods here: Dense undergroth and small trees full of moss mixed with small pine trees, there are mushrooms and every now and then you run into a cactus. Then it gets lighter and airy, with just a few plants on the bottom and those huge pine trees. The soil is mixed with sand, and it feels like you're not too far from the sea. (Well, maybe just to me.) It is silent there.
A dense silence. And you should be protected against the mosquitos.
