The fourth phase will explore the countries along the southern edge of
South America .

 So join us as we drive across South America.  Learn about the culture and visit with the people of the countries in South American.  View the animal and bird life, climb the Tepuis in Venezuela, travel on the Amazon and Orinoco Rivers and explore cities built by the Spanish and the Portuguese.
