a miracle happens in the mountains outside mexico city millions of monarch butterflies arrive and settle pinoy like thoughts on the wind. it's the end of an eight month migration to wide areas of north america and back a journey that takes the butterflies for successive generations to complete. come spring the monarchs will breed before flying north to lay eggs and then die it is not known how their offspring find their way back to mexico. but people on the streets of the capital have their own explanation one that's been passed down through the generations.
10:28 am
for good reason to live for the yes of of them but we believe that when someone dies and is buried they rise again as a butterfly. for the a no for the day of the day and only day. when we see a butterfly we say to each other look there is grandpa or that's our auntie over there. we see our lost loved ones again in the butterflies. it makes us feel good. is that what that is nice is not one of the diseases yes it was the other. mexico is preparing to celebrate the sad and yet jovial holiday dia de los muertos in two days' time. victor a stout man with a big heart has his hands full. the entire family pitches in and a neighbor makes the tortillas. victor says with some pride that his talk was are the best in mexico city.
10:29 am
on top of it and the long line in his stall would appear to endorse that calling. it kind of what do you recommend viktor try the comfort zone of tacos there are specialty. lexicons like a hearty taco. and they pack it with pop reka sausage. cheese from one pocket that melts into a cream. and then there's more meat. it's all topped with fresh no parties can't just fruit and plenty of sumatra. and which salsa do you recommend you go for the red one is the spiciest. i like it
10:30 am
a bit spicy but you mexicans of course can handle a lot more right. than the person that we give salt to to our kids so they get used to the spicy news from an early age for us there is no day without sauce. i mean if the spiciness gives us an upset stomach good look we mexicans are my daughters we simply keep on eating because he was about as he is if. there's no elegant way to eat a taco it's simply a cornucopia of indulgence very tasty and spicy. victor gets all the ingredients he needs around the corner mexico's markets are a celebration of the fullness and freshness of mice.
10:31 am
but on the day of the dead mexican celebrate something else as well. the morbid fascination with down. at their home in the countryside victor and his wife imelda have set up an altar for relatives who have passed on but it's a tradition. it's. not the candle we say this is for you my sister i need a. candle there's the name of someone who has died. it's important to provide things that they neuer would have for example said they can have a drink when they arrive to visit and this was never put him through i want. my
10:32 am
sister and or like tequila so we've also put out a bottle of tequila and we certainly it was done by. those who see. things of course which the dead in mexico savor as much as the living pandey muerto . bread sprinkled with lots of sugar. war colorful skulls made from pure sugar cane syrup. then three generations into an old pickup truck. at the cemetery the entire extended family decorates the grave of imelda sister in law who died a year ago. her husband victor's brother is overcome by grief.
10:33 am
his wife. her mother was only forty seven but the day is not dominated by sadness. he could have it. was often it's a joyous festival it has to be because life is short with the limbs that all the morning they will have to go to. see but i'm proud of the life i lead now and i'm happy when people come to my stand to eat tacos and leave satisfied you know probably to return again soon if the rest. in the evening the smell of incense walked across the graves like a scene in of iraq painting. and right behind the cemetery wall people are again cooking and eating like they
10:34 am
seem to do everywhere in this country life and death pleasure and pain. they're never far apart in mexico. the following morning victor and his family are back on the street setting up their stand. they've offered their dead now life goes on. the geek. in the realm of those one day will be gone but my sons should carry on here and if they do a better job than me all the better. people always need something to eat naturally we're no exception. and. death is part of life in mexico. but as victor would say as long as we're here we might as well eat the best tacos
10:35 am
in town. and mexicans live life to the full and that's not always possible for people here in colombia out to sea where the fish are jose miguel munoz's fifty six years old he has eleven children and twenty one grandchildren i love loss of experience where you have to know how to handle the rope that's the key thing is how you spotted a real body check on. what he did here is what i call you. yes police chase what you call this type of fishing and to fish like this you need to control the rope otherwise you're nobody cattle anything else while. the whole family pulls together here literally fathers brothers uncles nephews the rope is two to three hundred meters long. not too fast not too slow
10:36 am
the fishermen need to be acute to the rock that is the secret. and that is how the college arrows of carter haina bring in the fish always hoping for a catch for a teeming net. and
10:37 am
there's enough for everyone. to know. that my own kids don't do this any more they go to school or have jobs in town at the very most they'll come down here to take a walk they aren't fishermen and never will be. an object that. a way of life seemingly suspended in time the fishermen are the only ones with an uncertain future in modern day carjacking. boom. once it's hold on to land the fish johnny is short. laugh. from the sea into the frying pan and from then into the pocket. from the pockets of

a customer a squeeze of lime and it's ready to eat. supply fodder outstrips them out call to him a street team his friend has. lead to follow follow follow follow follow along and each one carries the weight of his past through the city streets. like francisco the team tara the coffee man. every day he makes his rounds about town there are hundreds of vendors like him hawking coffee pouring and refueling the more often the better obviously if you don't sell you won't survive.
10:39 am
francisco is not from car to hey man his hometown is a few hundred kilometers away. and i thought it would you believe we had to leave our village because of the violence the war between government troops and the rebels. we had to flee to save our lives the lives of our families and children we left everything behind me that much of the evil. i had is that i am and always will be a former. member of the eagle libya i mean every day i go down on my knees and pray that we'll be able to return to our fields but the war in colombia ends once and for all and. the peace deal has failed to hold violence in colombia and until it does francisco is staying here in ca to hannah serving cabot's ito a small coffee it's a staple of the colombian diamonds fast and easy powdered sugar water.
10:40 am
there's no more magic to it than that business is so sad. let it go you can see i don't want my kids to be doing this they need proper jobs. see how do anything they help that it'll go even if it means they'll never return with me to the village and to our field here the thing they're not they can get will be. cartagena the queen of the caribbean a dream destination for cruise ships and independent travelers. just fifty kilometers outside of the city and the world looks quite different. sunbeds sileo deplane kay well life can be better but the food is sweet. pollyanna and manuela make a sticky dessert out of coconut milk and
10:41 am
a whole lot of sugar they've never seen the recipe written down but often heard it talked about. isn't that their parents and grandparents showed us everything we watched and learned from them down the up in them or that it isn't so easy but not everyone knows how to make it. about anyone without reacts to dish and they know how. most residents of palanker are descendants of runaway slaves who founded the community as a refuge four hundred years ago locals say it was the first independent community in the americas a place with a rich past the meek a future that's the impression you get walking at streets. not a place it's easy to leave with a homemade goods liana and one way or set out for karjakin or.
10:42 am
whatever else our sisters need for the day they pick up on arrival in the city and this is where any romanticism about the traditions of their ancestors and. the fruit in the supermarket they say is simply fresh air. business is slow in sweets and fruit. but a photograph with a colorful appealing kara's that something tourists will pay for.
10:43 am
yet ok then he added i hope my kids won't have to do this kind of work my daughters know all about preparing the sweets they know everything. but i don't want them to follow in my footsteps there's no future in this. that it doesn't follow. through play just the fisherman the coffee vendors street food here is less a matter of passion than it is a slightly embarrassing necessity a sobering observation. we encountered his vague hope of better times often thomas but nowhere as often as in colombia. in peru norman hope has been passed down through the ages. it doesn't sound flattering when the people of limit remark of their city its sky
10:44 am
has the color of a donkey stomach but maybe it should be seen as a declaration of love the cool waters of the peru current lap the shores of lima they don't just bring fog they also deliver the freshest pacific fish to the capital's doorstep. but we also find a dish that is so simple and wonderful it quickly makes you forget the grey skies. amid the fish stalls of a district that is poor and sometimes dangerous you find the best city check at dawn you have been here stand. you'll say yes i know the proper way to prepare i don't make anything else i wouldn't be able to sell anything else was. wrong fish from the roadside yes it's fine at least if you buy it from don you're very senior . salt and hot chiles are added to the fresh fish the juice of peruvian limes

10:47 am
he got it back then people thought it was dangerous unhygenic to eat at the street corner at that but for me it was like theater or the most fascinating movie in the world of us you know that one that. if it weren't for his escape to the beach guest on our curio may well have become a lawmaker like his father but luckily he pursued a career as a chef and may well be one of the world's best his fish dishes embody peruvian history. this is a beach in this is the original sea beach up on sisters chile salt and fish it's the bond between the ocean and the mountains a love story between the pacific and the ending so yeah more us if we go you know something. that's because one of the key ingredients grows far away from the coast in the rugged wilderness of the andes. at an altitude of three thousand meters above sea level lies the sacred valley of the incas. valley so fertile it was
