NICARAGUA - Writing on the Edge
What is an active volcano if not the perfect slope to ride down? Robin hikes to the peak of Cerro Negro to feel the heat and the thrill of volcano boarding while Julia investigates the story of fair trade coffee. From soil to cup she learns how consumer choices back home impact a small coffee-growing community. Emotions run high as Robin and Julia examine the controversial trend of poverty tourism, as they visit families making a living inside Managua’s garbage dump.
