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

Its surface and shores are 423 metres (1,388 ft) below sea level, Earth's lowest elevation on land. The Dead Sea is 377 m (1,237 ft) deep, the deepest hypersaline lake in the world. With 33.7% salinity, it is also one of the world's saltiest bodies of water. . It is 8.6 times saltier than the ocean. This salinity makes for a harsh environment in which animals cannot flourish, hence its name. The Dead Sea is 67 kilometres (42 mi) long and 18 kilometres (11 mi) wide at its widest point. It lies in the Jordan Rift Valley, and its main tributary is the Jordan River. The Dead Sea has attracted visitors from around the Mediterranean basin for thousands of years. Biblically, it was a place of refuge for King David. It was one of the world's first health resorts (for Herod the Great), and it has been the supplier of a wide variety of products, from balms for Egyptian mummification to potash for fertilizers. People also use the salt and the minerals from the Dead Sea to create cosmetics and herbal sachets. The Dead Sea seawater has a density of 1.240 kg/L, which makes swimming similar to floating. The Dead Sea is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 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
