Rails Across Russia:

From St. Petersburg to the Pacific. Taking seven weeks to travel along the Trans-Siberian railroad across Russia is a once in a lifetime trip. We would never have done it but for our project of writing and filming a Geography of the World series
for Middle School students. All the World Geography textbooks include a chapter on Russia, so we had no choice. It was our good fortune that MIR Corporation of Seattle took care of land arrangements for us in return for a promotional video. Thanks MIR.

Grenada and Romance on CBS TV

Grenada is made up of three different islands, Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique. Some of the Caribbean’s most gorgeous islands. You can grow practically anything in this fertile soil. For instance Sugar which was used for making rum to be shipped up to the cold north. But of course it’s the spices that put Grenada on the map. The French and British waged war in the 17th and 18th century over who controlled the island and it’s rich crops.., Ft. George, in the capital city was built by the Brits to protect their interests. But what do spices have to do with Romance you ask? A good question. Many of the spices grown here are valued for their aphrodisiac qualities. Take the odd- looking nutmeg. Scratch the surface of any nutmeg and there beats the heart of a mighty aphrodisiac. Excuse me if I seem a little nuts about nutmeg ... But The Compulsive Traveler is also a little obsessive. At Douglaston Spice Estate.... you can pick your own aphrodisiac. Here’s a wonderful combination. Nutmeg and beautiful girls. But what about... Cinnamon or Chocolate? Another celebrated aphrodisiac. Also grown here in Grenada. At the Belmont Estate you see the century-old way chocolate or cocoa beans were prepared for market...by dancing on them in huge copper pots. And this is the way the Big Drum dance, a traditional African Dance was kept alive over the centuries and is still reenacted today. Mix this with the local spices and you get an intoxicating dose of tropical sensuality. From the delicious fresh grilled lobster... To the heady fragrance of the flowers the island pleasures greet you everywhere Here on Carriacou, you see the direct link between spices, sensuality, romance, love and... you guessed it.... marriage. What could be a more perfect place for a wedding? The best part is you don’t have to go anywhere for your honeymoon. It’s all right here. A word of caution: don’t come to Grenada unless you’re prepared to have your passions ignited. (And go easy on the nutmeg.) less

Our route from Senegal through much of Mali - sometimes on fairly good roads and sometimes on unmarked sand tracks. When our vehicle seemed to be stuck on top of a sand dune at midnight near the Maritanian border in western Mali we kept telling ourselves that it would make a good story if we survived. Often the worst travel experiences are the most fun to talk about in retrospect. less
