Steve Inskeep has begun a journey along the U.S.-Mexico border — from the Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific Ocean. NPR reporters are also pursuing stories of people, goods and culture crossing the border. Over the next two weeks, the team will be sharing impressions at NPR's On The Road blog as it prepares stories to broadcast on Morning Edition and other NPR programs in late March.
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Our colleague Steve Inskeep is on the road, traveling the entire U.S.-Mexico border, east to west, from the Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific. As part of the project, a team of NPR correspondents is pursuing stories about people, goods and culture crossing that border.
You'll hear their reporting and Steve's stories on MORNING EDITION and other programs later this month. But you can follow along on the journey, beginning today. You'll find notes and photos, a real travel log on one of our Tumblr accounts, NPR On the Road. It's at nprontheroad.tumblr.com - no spaces, all one word, nprontheroad.tumblr.com. And remember, there's no E in Tumblr.
I'm actually looking at the site now. They already have a gorgeous photo posted from the mouth of the Rio Grande.
