Videography by Dave Anderson.

This first video was shot on our drive to the first field visit in Peru. It was chilly, the view was breathtaking.  We took a little break to stretch our legs and have some coca tea to help us adjust to the increasing altitude we were gaining.

The second video takes place in the Southern Andes in Ecuador. Notice the dramatic difference in the landscape. On our drive to the farm we visited, we could see the landscape shifting from the dry desert to a green, lush environment.
