A Haitian Odyssey E3: Colombia

Line in the Land Logo
Roberto Martinez, TPR
/

To get to the U.S. border from South America, Haitians must journey on foot through an isolated stretch of jungle called the Darién Gap. This unruly path from northern Colombia to southern Panama is a literal gap in the Pan-American Highway, teeming with venomous animals, armed groups and rushing rivers. In episode three of Line in the Land, Haitian migrants take listeners with them on a forested journey like no other.
