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. less

From the Tibetan Plateau this river runs through China's Yunnan province, Burma, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia. In Phnom Penh the Mekong river receives the Tonle Sap River. The seasonal cycle of changing water levels at Phnom Penh results in the unique “flow reversal” of water into and out of Tonle Sap River. Phnom Penh also marks the beginning of the delta system of the Mekong River. Rich in fishlife the Mekong provides a large amount of the proteins consumed by the Phnom Pen population. Water dwellers and small fishing boats ply the waters incessantly. In the villages along the river is a small cottage industry of Khmer silk weaving which is one of the oldest traditions in Cambodia. We visited one called Heng Naysim. less

But it has been famous for 2 thousand years. Did you know Cleopatra used to come here because she loved the beaches and its balmy weather? Today Brits and Russians still crowd its beaches. But there are plenty of other things to do and see. Take the city of Paphos for instance. The beautiful 4 star Almyra Hotel is built right on the water . Here you can get a massage and look at the medieval castle from the days of the Crusades right across the harbour. Take this church from the 13th century. St Paul was chained to this pillar and flogged for preaching Christianity. I get goosebumps just thinking about it. You can walk to the archeological city which became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1980. Here rich Romans built their villas with great mosaics on the floor. Look carefully at these people drinking wine…. Sun and breezes means grapes and those Romans loved Cyprus wine. It’s vintage time and OLYMPUS winery in the Trodos mountains is busy picking grapes. South of Paphos is the Rock of Aphrodite, where according to legend Aphrodite the goddess of love sprung out of the water. In Limassol the famous Crusader Knights built this castle in the middle of vineyards, A thousand years ago they produced a dessert wine called Commanderia still enjoyed today. Here it is also wine festival time, where wineries from all over Cyprus come to pitch their wines. Cyprus although a very small island ranks 37th in wine production in the world. Going East are great beaches and sports activities Then some culture, visiting these grottos carved in the rocks where monks used to live and pray. Wow! Keo is a major winery producing world class wines. Finally, time to relax on endless beaches and secluded coves… Cleopatra was right! Cyprus is a magical place! You can visit our sponsors websites and enjoy foods and wines from Cyprus by ordering from their US distributors. And if you have time for a vacation you can book a trip right here. www.visitcyprus.com 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
