In The Americas with David Yetman Previous Broadcasts

Gift of the Andes: Mendoza, Argentina, and Its Wines (Episode #408H)

KQED Life: Fri, Oct 16, 2015 -- 11:30 PM

Argentina's nostalgic Ruta 40 passes along the base of the Cordillera of the Andes from the extreme north to the southernmost road in the nation. On its way Ruta 40 meets the famed wine capital of Mendoza, whose dedication to Malbec wine is recent, but whose win production dates to colonial times. David lingers in the vineyards and bodegas, sampling the varieties of Malbec and Argentine food. Farther south, Ruta 40 penetrates the northern reaches of Patagonia, a windswept desert boarded on the west by the incomparable Andes, and massive pre-Andean volcanoes.

From Vaquejada to Jangada: Into Rural Ceara, Brazil (Episode #406H)

KQED Life: Fri, Oct 2, 2015 -- 11:30 PM

A small state in Brazil's dry northeast, Ceara is home to a variety of traditions not found in the rest of the vast country. The inland bush, called the sertao, is home to cowboys and and odd rodeo, while the coast supports fisherman whose wooden boats are little changed over the last several centuries. Ceara is home to Brazil's most important religious shrine, its last lace-weavers, and a startling array of tropical fruits.
