Mexico’s President Hosts His Own Adventure Show

14 Sep

Imagine if we had a show on the Travel Channel with Obama canyoneering through one of America’s national parks?

Well…looks like Mexico’s President Calderon would have him beat.

According to MexicoToday and Huffington Post, Calderon is becoming a “sort of adventure tour guide in a series of TV programs to be broadcast starting in September on Public Broadcasting Service stations in the United States.

The president dons an Indiana Jones-style hat and a harness and descends a rope into the 1,000-foot-deep (375-meter) Sotano de las Golondrinas cavern, accompanied by Peter Greenberg, host of the “The Royal Tour” TV series. Calderon also straps on scuba tanks to lead Greenberg into a sinkhole lake known as a cenote in Yucatan. And he helps a Lacandon Indian paddle a boat down a river in a jungle in southern Chiapas state.”

A reason behind Mexican President Calderon hosting this adventure show is to promote that Mexico is safe for tourists.
