Claudia Joana Cruz (22) stepped on a landmine in 2013 while she was returning from a field trip on the countryside in Cauca. From that day she recalls: “I lost consciousness after the blast and they told me later I was losing a lot of blood. The reason they had to amputate so high was due to the infection. It took almost five hours until I was finally given medical assistance."
More than 11,400 people have been injured or killed by landmines since 1990. Uncleared minefields remain an obstacle to development and resettlement in areas of Colombia.
A peace accord has ended the fighting but the countryside is littered with land mines and criminal gangs are growing reclaiming territories left by FARC demobilized rebels. Deming is one of the challenges this hopeful nation faces after five decades of Civil War.

Top Shot: Escape Flight | Photograph by Nikolay Nikolov
#YourShotPhotographer Nikolay Nikolov captured this moment of two crows making their escape from a golden jackal. “The expression on the face of the jackal is so intense,” writes Your Shot Producer Matt Adams (@themattadams), who selected this image for the January 22, 2018. “Great work following the action with your lens and capturing this excellent wildlife photograph. The two crows are so close together, but there is a small space where the jackal’s face is revealed which is great.”

This small cave is about 1/2 hour kayak from the Willow Cove Marina and if you time your visit just right, you’ll find the early afternoon sun shining into the cave, lighting up incredibly green grass growing on the bottom of the river. // Even once you see it in person, you may still doubt it’s real. Plan your [un]real Arizona getaway. #VisitArizona
