2:27 am
a miracle happens in the mountains outside mexico city millions of monarch butterflies arrive in several penned all 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.
2:28 am
of it in little bundle yes they love them but we believe that when someone dies and is buried they rise again as a butterfly. and know the day of the day and allah 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 it's about that it's nice isn't it. it's easier to get up with 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 this talk of those are the best in mexico city.
2:29 am
on top of it and the long line of his stall would appear to endorse that claim. given what do you recommend victor of the competition of tacos there are specialty . figures. lexicons like a hearty taco. then 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 pa they say they can't disprove and plenty of sumatra . and which salsa do you recommend to go for the red one it's the spiciest. i like it
2:30 am
a bit spicy but you mexicans of course can handle a lot more right. than us a bit of the base on the can we give salt to to our kids so they get used to the spiciness from an early age for us there is no day without sauce and. even if the spiciness gives us an upset stomach good look we mexicans are modern doors we simply keep on eating that goes a while though it is a disease. that. there's no elegant way to eat a taco it's simply a cornucopia of indulgence very tasty if any spicy. victor gets all the ingredients he needs around the corner mexico's markets are a celebration of the fullness and freshness of life.
2:31 am
but on the day of the dead mexican celebrate something else as well. the morbid fascination with. the. at their home in the countryside victor and his wife imelda have set up an altar for relatives who have passed on. it's a tradition. it's. really not the candle we say this is for you my sister anita but every candle bears the name of someone who has died. it's important to provide things that they not only would have for example so they can have a drink when they arrive to visit and this time. for him. with my
2:32 am
sister in law like tequila so we've also put out a bottle of tequila. and sweet things of course which the dead in mexico savor as much as the living upon them with bread sprinkled with lots of sugar. or colorful skulls made from pure sugar cane sorry. but 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. with. her husband victor's brother is overcome by grief.
2:33 am
his wife. her mother was only forty seven but the day is not dominated by sadness. he could have. something it's a joyous festival that has to be because life is short with the limbs that although one day it will have to go to yours. 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 for me to return again soon and that was. in the evening the smell of incense walked across the graves like a scene and of a rock painting. and right behind the cemetery wall people are again cooking and eating like they
2:34 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 form of both of us one day we'll be gone but our sons should carry on here and if they do a better job than me all the better. people always need something to eat naturally were 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
2:35 am
in town. 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 it's how you spot a real body chaired a. voyeur is what they call you on the feet of the yes but each case what you call this type of fishing and to fish like this you need to control the rope otherwise you're nobody charile anything else while. the whole family pulls together here literally fathers brothers uncles nephews the rope is two to three hundred metres long. not too fast not too slow
2:36 am
the fishermen need to be a cue to the rock that's the secret. and that is how the ball or chair rows are car to hey now bring in the fish always hoping for a they can shoot for a teammate net. and
2:37 am
there is a non-factor every one. of . my own kids don't do this anymore 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. and look at that. a way of life seemingly suspended in time the fisherman and the only ones with an uncertain future in modern day contacting. from. alabama. once its hold on to land the fish johnny has shot. last. from the sea into the frying pan and from there into the bucket. from the pockets of
2:38 am
a customer a squeeze of lime and it's ready to eat. bad . food supply far outstrips them out cause a heinous treats team a friend has. led to follow. the law. and each one carries the weight of his past through the city streets. like francisco that in terror of 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.
2:39 am
francisco is not from ca to hainan his hometown is a few hundred kilometers away. and i thought. 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 will. they had they had 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 and the war in colombia and was once and for all that. the peace deal has failed to hold violence in colombia and until it does francisco is staying here in cartagena serving camp and seato a small coffee that's a staple of the colombian dion's fast and easy powdered sugar water changes
2:40 am
there's no more magic to it than that business is so sad. let it go you know i don't want my kids to be doing this they need proper jobs with provision and see i'll do anything to help that your even if it means they'll never return with me to the village and to our field here the thing i'm not they can get will be. katerina the queen of the caribbean dream destination for cruise ships and independent travelers. just fifty kilometers outside of the city and the world looks quite different. sun bacilli oh dear playing kay well life can be bitter but the food is sweet. pollyanna and manuela make a sticky dessert out of coconut milk and
2:41 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 or meet on the up in them or that it isn't so easy but not everyone knows how to make it. about anyone with our it's traditions they know how. that is the. 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 and the meek a future that's the impression you get walking its streets. and not a place that's easy to leave with a home made goods for yana and one way or set out for katerina.
2:42 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 a supermarket they say is simply fresh air. business is slow in sweet some fruit. but a photograph with a colorful appealing characters that something tourists will pay for.
2:43 am
it ok then yes 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 is their future and that's it without that bit of. truth played is 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 this 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 lame out remark of the city it's guy
2:44 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 laugh the shores of lima they don't just bring fog they also deliver the freshest pacific fish to the capitals doorstep. the fact that 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. at dawn your vision your 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. raw fish from the roadside yes it's fine at least if you buy it from don you're very. salty and hot chili as

2:47 am
got back then people thought he was dangerous unhygenic to eat at a street corner at that but for me it was like theater or the most fascinating movie in the world of us you know that even. 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 embodies peruvian history there is there 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. you have some. 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 metres above sea level lies the sacred valley of the incas. a valley so fertile it was
2:48 am
a personal possession of the ruling family. the incas were the first to plant rico to hear. this almost magical chili pepper is still readily available today at markets in the mountains. see this is because it is healthy the body always need something sweet and salty. is it doesn't help fight infections which is a scam and seeds are nice and toss. it out not being. rococo and salt preserve the fish a process that in ancient times and shirts of each a could also be enjoyed in the
