Show #163 - "Cycle of Life"
This week, adventure host Dan Monskey travels to Guatemala City in Central America for a story about the challenging life of the people who call this beautiful country home. City and country life meet in a place scattered with volcanoes and rich traditions and history of the Mayan people. As you peel back the layers beyond the surface culture and scenery, you begin to see lives filled with hardship and sometimes hopelessness. In the heart of this city lies what is perhaps the largest garbage dump in Central America. In a country such as ours, where affluence is common, it’s difficult to imagine generations of families surviving off the refuse of others. Dan visits the home of such a family and learns that there is pride and dignity in a job that provides self-sufficiency. Join us for this amazing story of strength, gratitude and the power of the human spirit.
