Patagonia's Cultural Trail: From The Coast To The

Season 18, Episode 7 of 10

For 10,000 years people have called Patagonia Desert home, and they continue to do so to this day. In this episode, Host David Yetman, Argentine Archeologist María José Figuerero and native son of Patagonia, Harry Nauta trek inland to examine a cross section of the Patagonia desert from the coastal city of Comodoro Rivadavia into the Andes, finally arriving at the border with Chile. Winds blow typically upwards of 50 kilometers per hour and roads through the desert are stark, but far from dull. The travelers halt to rescue a stray Patagonian Armadillo, inspect gigantic oil pumps that dot the arid plains, tour an abandoned railroad station, interpret tableaus of rock art, and drop in on the harvest at a cherry farm. Join them as they conclude their trip with a Patagonian party filled with vibrant music, traditional dance and barbecued lamb.
