Panama

Young American backpacker Mark Wedeven wanted the ultimate adventure in the fall of 2002: crossing from Panama to Colombia through a hundred miles of dense jungle. Upon crossing into Colombia, armed guerrilla soldiers took them hostage. After being held for days, they were taken to a graveyard at the edge of a village, where Mark was convinced they were going to be executed. Instead, he was taken alone to a meeting with the squad commander and questioned about his politics and eventually freed.
