Summary
As Jonathan travels across Colombia and Venezuela, he discovers that they have strikingly divergent modern realities. Colombia, for so long synonymous with drug wars, is also a country of hope and resilience. Jonathan cycles with a visionary mayor around the streets of Bogotá, meets a reformed FARC fighter, goes to a coffee farm in the Andes, visits a cemetery in Medellín, and enjoys watching a group of breakdancing kids from the notorious hillside slums. In Venezuela, Jonathan searches for a sense of the true spirit of this polarized nation. He finds himself at an anti-U.S. rally, joins a police patrol in a crime-ridden section of Caracas, rides with cowboys, and listens to a youth orchestra drawn from two previously warring neighborhoods.
