Tri-Border Area comes to TV: "Triple Crossing"

The Sundance channel has announced its line-up for the next year and it looks like the Triple Frontera--the border zone between Ciudad del Este, Foz do Iguaçu, and Puerto Iguazu (Paraguay, Brazil, and Argentina, respectively) where I've lived and researched--is becoming an increasingly popular go-to setting for exotic baddies.

Here's the heart of the announcement:

• TRIPLE CROSSING – a geopolitical crime drama set in a lawless South American city that borders Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil. Produced by John Malkovich’s Mr. Mudd (Juno, The Dancer Upstairs).

As for realism and knowledge of the site... I'll wait until I actually see it to figure out whether they just used their imagination or actually sent someone to scout out the border zone for verisimilitude. One interesting give-away: the cities at this border use four currencies for common exchange, interchangeably--Guaraníes, Reais, Pesos, and Dollars.

This comment has nothing to do with this article, but I could not find any other way to contact you on your blog.

Where can I read your ARTICLE: "Fine Dining: Race In Prerevolution Cuban Cookbooks"

I have started a cooking blog, and am based in Miami. I thought your article sounded very informative, and perhaps there would be quotable references to accompany some of my future recipes.

I am not a student do I do not have access to a library.

I hope I didn't violate blog protocol, by posting here.
