Author Martin Mitchinson tells us what it was like spending 18 months in the Darien Gap of Panama. The Darien is a roadless jungle covered gap of land that stretches from the Caribbean to the Pacific ocean covering the edge of the Panama Columbia border. It is not the biggest undeveloped jungle area but it is probably the most dangerous. People who know where it is stay away based on a history of FARC kidnappings and the fact it is home to those who don't want to be found. Martin tells how he ended up in the Darien and why it wasn't as dangerous as people say. Tune in and listen to the experiences that lead to a book called The Darien Gap, Travels in the rainforest in Panama.
