Part 1 will be the segment “Coffee and Culture in Oaxaca.” The state of Oaxaca is home to sixteen different Indian groups, among whom can be found more than sixty different languages. Each group retains much of its ancient culture. We visit a Zapotec market, navigate the mangrove watercourses on the coast, and participate in the harvesting, drying and roasting of coffee in the fog forest.
Part 2 will be the segment “Bogota to the Amazon: A Trip Across Colombia.” From the urban capital city of Bogota and its famous cicolvia dedicated to bicycles, this sprawling nation offers a unexpected variety of cultures and urban landscapes. We hop from the mountains to the extreme southern tip of the country to see wildlife and to visit indigenous villages of the people who live in the heart of the Amazon jungle.
