Peru and Colombia

Series 1 - Episode 9 Peru and Colombia



The veteran traveller canoes through the remotest reaches of the Peruvian rainforest and finds the newly discovered Machigenga tribe have already caught on to plastic utensils and football boots. A more leisurely steamer trip takes him down the Amazon and on to Bogota, the drug-riddled crime capital of Colombia, where he shares lunch with a Godfather figure.
