Vox Borders – Colombia (Plus Fruit!)

Johnny Harris takes us to Colombia in season 3 of Vox Borders to once again demonstrate that he has one of the world’s best jobs. Highlights of this season include the generosity of Colombians to Venezuelan immigrants, how Escobar’s private zoo created a dangerous population of hippos, the roots of cumbia music, and a sympathetic view of coca farmers. My desire to visit Colombia skyrocketed thanks to Johnny’s bonus episode for Eater, exploring a fruit market in Bogota:

Colombia is high on the list of countries to visit someday, and re-watching this season will be one of my first steps whenever I do plan a trip:
