Tales of (mis)adventure from abroad

After 2 days of hacking my way through the jungle and passing peaceful indigenous settlements, I started to ponder: Why all the control posts, the permits, the warnings? Sure, there were the usual dangers one would expect in a wild equatorial rainforest, but none of the 3 local tribes was remotely hostile. As for the “guerilleros”, nobody I met had seen one. Yet the government continues to isolate this region from the rest of the country and so the Darien Gap remains, to this day, the only break in the continuous network of roads connecting Alaska to Tierra Del Fuego.
