Around the world 2014→2015
Let's start this route starting from its origins. Those who have populated the Americas will almost certainly came from the Northwest through a strip of land which connected to Asia, probably tens of thousands of years ago. More or less from the same point (but coming from Hong Kong and not the Bering Strait) our adventure starts on American territory.
An all-female adventure (the team is composed of women) that from the Gulf of Alaska, through the extraordinary naturalistic landscapes of Canada, moves then far and wide, especially in the western part of the United States (in various States, including California, but coming to touch even, towards the East, the city of New Orleans).
The next step, left the United States, is leading the team to cross the Mexico, passing through the mountain range of the Sierra Madre Oriental and the Sierra Madre Occidental to the massif of southern Mexico, the territory of ancient Atzeca civilization. Characteristic of these mountainous areas is the presence, even at high altitudes, urban settlements formed by colonial towns, traditional little changed from recent architecture (Taxso, Oaxaca, San Cristobal de las Casas in Mexico; Antigua in Guatemala), or from real metropolis like Mexico City. Then we pass the border again and enter, as the last stage, in Guatemala.
Help us to help.
