The Central Highlands of Mexico are known to the local people, and a few savvy travelers as the the “Land of Eternal Spring.” Traveling from Mexico City we will see ancient ruins, colonial silver towns, modern retirement meccas, active volcanos, and many other interesting sites, all of which are part of “The Other Side of Mexico.” This is an all new digital production by Fran and Brook Reidelberger exploring part of our southern neighbors far from the daily headlines.

FRAN REIDELBERGER, from Grayling, MI, has been checking out the other side of the mountain since his childhood days in Nashville, IL. He appears regularly on many major travel lecture platforms, including the National Geographic Society and the Carnegie Institute. Fran and his filmmaker wife Brooke believe that if people of the world understood each other better there would be less chance for hostility and more chance for world peace.

Starting in the mid-1700s to the 19th Century, more then 5,000 miles of canals crisscrossed England, Scotland and Wales.They served as the internal transportation system for Great Britain. Since that time, the canals have become a playground for the holiday boaters, as well as”home” for many retirees who live on their floating homes year round. Fran and Brook rented an old fashion canal boat to film past history and discover modern engineering marvels and enjoy the beautiful British countryside. Bring your lifejacket and join them in this exciting adventure.
