This video was shot by Andrew Peacock, a medical doctor (and fantastic photographer) who teaches expedition medicine courses. Andrew recently wrapped up just such a course aboard the National Geographic Explorer, a ship operated by Lindblad…

The video is filled with amazing scenery from that part of the world, while members of the Kusbegi share their thoughts…
