Behind the scenes

Following the flowers: snaps from Bogota, Colombia

Over the weekend I joined United Airlines and members of their cargo team on a trip to Bogota, Colombia for a story about how flowers get from there to here for Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day and special occcasions (such as my upcoming birthday).

I’ll be putting together a story for my At the Airport column on USA TODAY, but on my layover here in Houston I wanted to share some pics from the farm tour of┬áJaroma Roses, about an hour outside Bogota, which ships about 30 million stems each year.
