"This is travel with Rick Steves. We're talking with Rick and Pinson and telling us about one of the most arduous journey of his life. I can along the cocoa trail in Papua New Guinea. His book is called walking with ghosts in Papua New Guinea. You call this the most grueling adventure sixty miles you know. That's that's a long hike but it's certainly not one of the longer hikes around but in dense jungle was the temperatures crazy. Were you afraid about your health. Were their animal's swinging from trees. What was it? That made it grueling. Well first of all you media advance at about a mile an hour so if you're out for six or seven hiking hours in a day you haven't really made much progress on a sixty mile trek size. You're going to be making the commitment of being seven to ten days on the journey. That's if the weather is good the jungle at times as oppressive and all you can see is thirty seven shades of green fascinating. And if you stop and listen you can hear all sorts of noises. That are observing you. And you don't know whether they're predators are birds but the sounds are fantastic particularly at night when it's his black black can be your sleep and you wake up and you think what are those choices. How Vulnerable Am I? And you're happy to be surrounded by some mates. You're probably fully aware that you are such a rookie when it comes to jungle life skills. Isn't that true and these other guys? That's just I'm thirsty. I'm GONNA climb this tree for a coconut. And they make it work. The other thing was that the pounds were to a person or porters. The helpers anyone with the cooking they were absolutely wonderful as hosts and in effect saying this is my country. I will share with you. Whatever you would like to see or learn about it. They would talk. They would tell stories and we could hear their music late at night or first thing in the morning before we were even though yeah. That's great so something I should say about. The cocoon trail is that its prominence has come because during the Second World War. It was the site of fierce fighting between the Australians and the Japanese and it was a different time than the world. We live in today. Societies are different today than they were then but for six months this was and the terms of general macarthur the worst fighting conditions anywhere in World War. Two coincident with this were the Americans at Guadalcanal. So that's the timing in nineteen forty two and we had pretty good weather on the Kakada but in nineteen forty to the September was the wettest September on record. I talked with other truckers. Who have been on there before like our guides and they were there when it was rainy. And you would take ten or twelve days to. We did in five or six right. Just because you're you're you wrote quite movingly about the Australian military campaigns and how heartbreaking. They must've been. I will tell you twice on the trip. I cried when we were in a little bit of a memorial we had stopped to talk about Butcher Hill or Brigade Hill or other places where the battles had been fierce for both sides but to think of the young lives. That were were lost in all of the brutality order. I woke up one night and it was foggy. Though that the rain and come in and it was dead quiet it must have been two three in the morning and I was this fear of what it would have been like to be thinking that somebody was maybe twelve feet away and wanted to take your life so emotionally. It was draining. I would say that most places around the world if you go to an old battle site say in Europe it's been modernized or fixed up the access routes. This looks like it did in nineteen forty two with the jungle overgrown where it wants to the jungle has its way with the path so you are walking through history but it's as it looked in nineteen forty two you wrote about gold prospectors and British colonial forces and tragedies why was there an awareness that white imperialists have had really had a brutal hand here in this on this island on the island of New Guinea me with the Spanish the British the Germans the there were colonial powers that the Dutch in Indonesia next door so a lot of that played out with sort of the territorial bits and then world war one changed that a bit World War to change more dramatically and then in the early Seventies Papua New Guinea became its own independent country with its own flag and some national anthem. And its own pride. The sometimes gets tarnished today by the the image of the rascals. Ne'er do wells who had the rascals Joe and when you're on a bus going across Papua New Guinea you've got these two bit bandits out there and they're not gonNA kill you. They're just going to take everybody off the bus take all their clothes and other jeweler and other cameras and just leave him naked there. And then they're going to laugh into the next valley What was the rascal situation for you? So we encountered it not on the trail but when we got to one of the maybe second or third largest community around there. Which IS PAPA DATA? And they were very much around the the compound the we went into the grocery store. Jovan and our motor vehicle and then the gates were closed behind us. We did our shopping. But you'll get protective compound protective armed guards because they're these quote rascals out there and they call them rascals because they're not murderous thugs they're just petty thieves. Is that the deal. Or How would you well? They are both of the above the harder they do. So the RASCALS R. A. S. K. O. L. S. The rascals. Have more from being tribal feuds to coming into the major centers not always having jobs there becomes the drug trade got a lot of initiation that sometimes for youngsters is not just robbing. But it's a salt and it's it's very hurtful things there. Also are feuds that remain unresolved from over the years and so there have been stories of truckers being accosted. Usually it is the guides. They are with the bear. The brunt of being accosted by another tribe and there are a lot of tribes. We've got an email here from Richard and Margaret River in Australia and Richard Rights. I taught in the capital city. Port-moresby at the University of Papua New Guinea for several years was very impressed at the language skills of the citizens. There there are over eight hundred languages in Papua New Guinea and most residents understand about three or four of them and actually used several languages. Were you aware of the amount of languages that society has to deal with their? I became aware of that more through research than encountering because while we hear songs in different languages being sung by the porters and some of them spoke different languages they would have talked piston or they would have about pigeon version by Papa. New Guinea has eight hundred thirty two different languages. There are six thousand eight hundred eleven languages in the world so it means that a small country small population twenty percent of all the languages in the world around that half an island exactly which has point one percent of the world's population and the only other country with eight hundred living languages is India and they're twelve percent of the world's population is so when you juxtapose that it goes back to the the early settlements were all in pocket. Valley's spread along the ocean shore up rivers and they survived on their own in their languages were totally independent structures. This has traveled for exceeds. We're talking with Rick Anthem. Sent his book is walking with ghosts in Papua New Guinea. If you just think while you were there was there a moment when you thought this is just an exposure to a different world and you're so thankful that you were there to benefit from that. I would think the middle of the night experiences when you just wake up. One Night I got up. I want to them. The Boertien was coming back and the stars and only nine thousand stars. We actually can see with the naked eye and you could see more in the southern hemisphere than in the northern hemisphere because of the tilt whatever number I looked at they were masquerading as a billion and I felt the intimidation of the night sky and being in a country where that moment. I thought I was possibly the only person awake. So that was humbling and inspiring at the same time. I bet you're glad you took your friends. Offer up to go to Papua New Guinean hike the CUCKOO trail.

"Exceptionally high tides in the Venice Lagoon caused near record flooding in November. Twenty nineteen just a bit. We'll check in with Italy cultural expert Fred Plotkin and with a resident who had to clean up after the Aqua Alta flooded the ground floor of her home they'll share some interesting perspectives with us on. Why the high waters in Venice are getting more and more serious and travel writer? Canton's and tells us about one of the toughest hikes up his life when he crossed the historic coca trail Papua New Guinea. Let's start with a look at the Mardi Gras and Carnival celebrations going on in Basque country. The customs and street parties will vary from town to town one of the oldest cultures in Europe. The Basques include some interesting public festivities in the days leading up to the fasting period of length traditions. That sometimes go back further than anyone can remember for a peek at how they do carnival in Basque country. We're joined by Claire Noah. She's from Hess Barron in the French Basque country and a Gustin lives in San Sebastian. On the Spanish side of the border. Welcome Claire and Augustine. Thank you very much so first of all. You're both from best country. Claire who are the Basques just very briefly and the basket is one of the oldest civilization in Europe and we are divided on those two parts one in France in another Barton Spain and Augustine. Those the language of Basque people yes. We speak Basque language which we call Skater. Who Scatter I WANNA talk about. Carnival carnival basically is the blow out before lent that leads up to Holy Week and Easter. It goes way back to even pre Christian Times on trying to get through the winter and there's a hope for resurrection for new crops in the fields for the end of the hunger time and the darkest depths of winter. I think the meat was going to go bad. And they had to eat it. All or something or carnival. Carney is the word meat and that led up to forty days of denial lent and then Easter so we know Mardi Gras in New Orleans. That's basically fat Tuesday in French. And IT'S CARNIVAL TIME RIGHT. Turn tell me about carnival. Because it's a big deal in Basque country. A Gustin what is carnival in your perspective. As a person in Basque country we have to waste of Celebrating carnival the more more than Christian celebrations. There are more popular on the Spanish side on the more traditional Pagan celebrations. That you can find in the past country of France. The difference is the recent history. I mean this pagan celebrations were banned by the dictator Franco for thirty five years He banned the use of the language and all kind of Celebrations related to pass or and this was banned. Sue was probably lost the in that time. So let me get this straight. You've got Basque culture. Which is a lot of ways? The same in France and in Spain but carnival is a mix of Christian and pagan traditions. And when you see these crazy creatures jumping up and down in Europe in many cultures it's pre Christian and it's a way to integrate the the indigenous religion in ancient times with the Christian. The newer religion and Franco was allied very carefully with the Catholic Church in Spain. He didn't want any pagan influence in the Spanish Basque country so he said this is a Christian festival none of that Pagan stuff but in France they were more free to have let loose with the pagan craziness. Correct correct Franco considered himself the highest representation of the Catholic Church and turn the country into a religious state Now clear I would imagine in France. Then you have some pretty wild costumes when people dress up during carnival especially where the Pagans go crazy in the French side of the border. What is the carnival? Can you just were on radio but paint a picture for look like for me? It's colorful with many natural things so we will have flowers leaves and we will have ribbons. We will have a chilling chuck which is a small bells everywhere. So you have to hear the carnival and you have to say it's an explosion. Okay of joy. It's just a moment where you go out from last year and everything that went wrong and you wish something really good for the next one so you just have to explodes yourself and just let it go. Go out with your animal part of you. Let your animal free and you're inside and we all have this side in so we have just. This is the perfect moment just to and then you start again so you dress up. There's music there's staying up all night. What's going on in different places? You've got different carnivals into French part of the Basque country three provinces for example Nepali which is really famous. You've got cash Celtic. So those people are going from house to house every weekend before carnival low even after they go to each house. They had get to know the neighborhood. So it's kind of ritual and they'll go to every house they sing. They play music. They DANCE. They share several cups of wine. And then it's a big party the tired but it's it's really nice. This is so interesting because I've been going to the best country for a long time and I have to be honest. I feel there's more character and enthusiasm in Spain because the French Basques are more French to me. More controlled by Peres but here on carnival. You let that ask animal that when you hear Claire. Talking about that from the Spanish Basque side on Carnival do you relate to have an animal you're gonNA lose all And fortunately now we have just a couple of little towns in the north of Navarro which are having the celebration in which the these men are carrying big belts that are bouncing and making big noise. Dig Like cowbells accounting. Yes huge cultures. A lot of this You know animal caretaking in the Malki. As the purpose of it is to wake the nature awake. The youth. Springtime is communist very much related to the end of winter. Welcome in the New Year and also we can in the nature and the spring is coming. So he's very much really. That's something you can see in two different towns in the north of Pamplona Navarre and also a couple of towns in the area outside San Sebastian. When I think of eastern Spain anyways I think of processions solemn processions like in savvy and so on some Amazon Too Holy Week Carnival feels a little more. Just apart and in. Holy Week is more sacred. Yes especially in the spiny side. You'RE GONNA see is big. Parades like you'd like him to turn off taller than most popular. One people go from all the areas. Go and see this parade. Our guest from Basque country are Agustin Cerita from San Sebastian Spain and Claire. Moya from aspirin a little town outside zone in the southwest corner of France. They're sharing. What makes the days leading up to ash Wednesday special and Basque country and what their traditions include on both sides of the border so clear got this image of being in the middle of all this festivity and chaos and music and happy people help me just better understand it. First of all people are dressed up like animals. What kind of animals would they be? So demane animal is a bear. Okay so the bear is opening the spring so the bear will be around. He will care the Children. And then you've got people with long hats horns flowers mirrors and ribbons everywhere so mirrors on their head yet and ahead and hot long heads. Yeah long hunted. Punted has been these these what color the pointed with many flowers. So you need to represent nature. And then they hire a Cornucopia of life really. That's right okay. And what else have also skirt with A sheep wool the horns and then also a natural shoes at whatever you find in nature you do it like trees or whatever you find. These are a bunch of little ferry Elvis and so on coming out of the woods and stirring up all the energy of people. What about the music? What kind of music? We've got a lot of music really punchy. And a lot of songs linked to Legendary people are the witches. Or whatever would this be kind of just noisy ringing bells and hitting drums or is it actually melodic? We've got to we've got the drums and the bells just to make a lot of noise to wake everybody. And then we've got ours. We single out in the Basque country. So we have a songs with all the people getting together. It must be a time when the community feels like. It's one big family. Oh yes and that's part of the beauty. It's part of ritual to be together and have fun. This is travel with Rick Steves. We're.

"Throw the good doctor curve ball. And he always smacks it out of the park. So good morning. Doc. Paul. How are you? Good. I'm glad we got your volume up right away. So here's the thing. I know what you want to talk about. And believe me, I'm going to spend most of the time talking about it. But I would be remiss in not getting your take on what we've been talking about. Which is it's colon cancer awareness month and this younger onset colon cancer. And then the other story about heart attacks who are forty or younger, the number steadily increasing over the last decade couple of big stories. I think yeah. So, you know, the the interesting incidents changes in diseases than younger people isn't really clear, but you know, we've noticed a force over the last couple of decades that people have become less fit. They have become more overweight. They have taken on more sedentary lives. So, you know, maybe there's something there. There's also some clear diet changes relative. Let's say colon cancer. You know, whether it's eating less, fiber weather, if eating more types of needs, whether it's a change in our. Gut microbiome in the bacteria that populate us. There's something going on. That's obviously very different, obviously, we're also screaming a little bit more aggressive. So we're able to catch things hopefully a little bit earlier. But that's really what it comes down to, you know, relatives so identifying especially colon cancer younger people, you really do have to pay attention to symptoms because right now the guidelines really recommend starting aggressive spray our restaurant, they regular screening until age forty five or fifty. So, you know, you're younger than forty five and you have symptoms if you have diarrhea if you notice you're still if you noticed a significant change in your bowel habits, those are all things that should prompt. You to see your doctor and your doctor can do more careful testing. There has been some sort of a shift. We just don't know exactly what the source of it. It'll be fascinating to see. We've talked in the past switching to what we were scheduled to talk about. I've talked about it. You've talked about it. Everybody has that. Thirty years ago when somebody was sixty five they acted like they were old they appeared to be old sixty five you know, that's ridiculous now, however, what a fascinating study published in Lancet by universities university of Washington folks about the real physiological feelings and issues about turning sixty five and how depending on where you live. It's completely different. Yeah. Exactly. You know, everyone does know that older person that feels are looks much younger. And likewise, you know, some people that are young that seemed to have maybe, you know, taking a little bit of a like taking more of a toll on them. Well, that's holds true. When you look at the health across an entire country. It's sort of what you would consider the help average of the entire country and the results of the study. Worrying fact, surprising because of the the the breath that is a number of years that covered the best aged seniors in some countries versus the other. And what I mean by that is the average age of seventy six year old Japanese person at the average health, I should say of a seventy six year old Japanese person was as old as the average sixty five year old person globally and on the other end the average forty six year old in Papua New Guinea felt like the average sixty five year old person globally as a thirty year difference. So seventy six year olds where like. Forty six year old in Papua New Guinea, Oregon's the other way to put it is forty six year olds for like seventy six year old Japanese. Here's another way to put it. You. Don't wanna be living Papa NEW GUINEA. Well, yeah. I mean, there's there is actually a lot to be said about the way these different countries either approach help or maybe some of the genetic nature to the people in that population. Really an interesting step toward moving away from looking at a person's chronological age that at their age since I really taking a person who's what I referred to help age into account, which ultimately might be more important as we live longer. We want more quality years. And so it's not about living longer and being sick. When you're old, but you wanna have healthy years now here in the United States, we were slightly above the global average. So this was the study was done. So that if they were comparing every country to the global average sixty five year old well in the United States, the global average was sixty eight point five year old that is sixty eight point five year old felt like sixty five year old. So we're about three years fired than the global average. But in ratings that would the United States at fifty four from the top which there were one hundred ninety five he studied. So we're nowhere near the top. And I think the big picture here is that at fifty four. There is a lot of room to. Prove to the number one position, which is Japan. I mean, imagine if instead of feeling like a sixty five year old at sixty eight or sixty eight year old even you didn't feel like that until you were actually seventy six how much better that would feel across the population of the United States. Let me give that let me give that very quickly number one is Japan at seventy six point one years, followed by Switzerland Seventy-six, France, seventy six Singapore, seventy six this is when you feel physically and with the maladies that come with being sixty five don't hit you to your seventy six in Japan, Switzerland, France and Singapore, followed by Kuwait, South Korea, Spain Italy, Puerto Rico, Peru the bottom of the top ten seventy four point three. And we're forty fifty fourth in line. So we have a long way to come. Right. Exactly. Now, you know, it's also interesting to note that although most of the countries with those better health ages like Japan can be. Wealthier nations there were countries like Mexico or Peru or practically United States like Puerto Rico, which had still a much much higher ages than the average American. So it doesn't necessarily have to do with the wealth of the country. It has something to you with, you know, whether it's the climate whether it's the lifestyle the population, genetically there's something there that needs to be studied to figure out how how we can not just extend our lives, but extend our healthy years in our lives. Hey, Dr you killing me, we gotta go. But what's the device the man war to save his life? That's not a new device. But we've probably never heard of it that you guys keep promoting channel four.

"I'm morning you now the history of priante is a huge one in part because it's not really just one disease. Like, you just talked about each pre-owned disease has its own detective story and each contribute to the story of prianti as a whole. And that's Hori is going to take us all over the world from the pastures of Spain to the highlands of Papua New Guinea from the grocery stores written to the forests of North America. And we're going to meet some rather interesting people along the way who will show us that changing people's minds can be exceptionally hard. Especially when ego and glory seemed to be driving you more than a quest for truth. Let's get started. Even though the word preowned was only invented if you decades ago the history of pre-owned diseases stretches back much farther, probably hundreds of thousands of years, but before I get to that. Let's try to track when preowned diseases I became known to modern humans. There are many early references to a pre on light condition that have been put forth as evidence for the disease being present at a certain time or place Hippocrates may have mentioned it their strong support that Shakespeare refers to it and MacBeth. I didn't read it. But a lot of things like, oh, yeah. Macbeth baba. I should probably find that that line. And it was probably around during those times. But let's get down to when it first started making big waves between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in Europe human population was on the rise. And that meant figuring out ways to make more food to make more clothing housing that cetera to support the growing populace and one way that people maximized efficiency and productivity was through selective. Breeding which wouldn't actually go by that name for almost one hundred years when Darwin would discuss in his books, but the concept of breeding plants or animals to select for certain desired traits was known and one of the biggest developers of selective. Breeding was dude named Robert Bakewell who applied to sheep and in doing so changed. The course of history. Always the bay quells with the sheep. What is the fastest way to get the traits that you want in issue? I don't have this lightest idea. Okay. Well, you would breed the sheep who are the look the closest to your ideal image. Okay. I'm accents Bakewell started doing what was known as in. And in breeding, which means mating parents with offspring Austrian with each other really game of thrones type, I say just like, you know, England, but. Day.
