I'm always on the lookout for the remote, mysterious, and dangerous parts of our world and the Darién Gap between Panama and Columbia is certainly one of them. I heard about this on NPR: Jun 22, 2016 - "Via Cargo Ships and Jungle Treks, Africans Dream of Reaching the U.S." by Carrie Kahn on npr.org Refugees from Africa are making their way through the impossibly rugged terrain and braving confrontation with FARC and drug lords. I had never thought of South/Central America as a destination for refugees from so far away. I also didn't know about the 19,000 mile-long Pan-American highway that's interrupted by this area. Anyway, check it out.
