Sometimes academics we meet are guarded with their knowledge but this is not the case when we take to the airwaves with the Director for the Global Heritage Fund for Latin America Santiago Giraldo and talk about everything from anthropology and archeology in Colombia but mainly focus on the wonder that is the Teyuna Ciudad Perdida or Lost City.
From the elegant offices of the GHF (globalheritagefund.org) we discuss the overall work and mission of the entity, their projects around the world and indeed the issues surrounding the Lost City.
This really is a not-to-be-missed episode that will draw some light on the challenges bested and indeed yet to be confronted when it comes to protecting and managing a project of this type in Colombia and Giraldo is responsible for creating the Master Management Plan for Teyuna-Ciudad Perdida Archaeological Park in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta Mountains of Colombia.
So, have you hiked to the Lost City or is it something you wish to do in the future? If so, you will definitely enjoy this interview.
