Ale and I have been invited by Roberto Escobar, Pablo Escobar’s brother, to have dinner with him on his ranch just outside of Medellin, Colombia. We’ll be in Colombia for about a week doing an assignment about banana plantation workers. Have their lives improved since Escobar was killed? Is the system under which they work really “fair trade”? Those are just some of the questions my client wants answers to.

I want to see the plane. The plane above the ranch entrance, according to Pablo’s brother Roberto, and our host, is one that Pablo bought and flew himself in 1975 during the early days of his drug smuggling career.
Keep watching in this blog for information as the trip gets closer.
