St Vincent feels like it’s stuck in a time capsule, a gentler time with people who are genuinely friendly, and it’s a place for adventurous spirits of all kinds. You get here by small plane only. Tonight I’m going to Soca Monarch, the contest to select the songs to play during Carnival. Carnival is a month long celebration in July and Vincentians come out and party day and nite. Soca is an evolution of Calypso, but it’s more dancey, more energetic and makes you sweat. This song is called La Diablesse, the she-devil about a folk story from slavery days and is full of sexy theatrics. I’m too wiped out by the party last night. So a soft adventure with Sailor’s Wilderness Tours into archeology suits my energy level just fine today. St Vincent has a long history. Waves of settlers came in from South America: Ciboneys, Arawaks and Caribs right before Columbus. Here we have petroglyphs - pictures and stories carved on large stones, made by the first settlers probably 2000 ago. These monuments are very accessible. You can touch them, feel them, and even crawl on them. Adventure in archeology takes you back into ancient history. This is the god of rain. This stone is next to a river, so it probably begged the god for water. Please fill our river so we can have nice very large trouts for dinner. My energy level is up so Sailor and I will go cycling. Sailor owns the only bike shop in St. Vincent and he is the head of the St Vincent Olympic Team. We’ll start with a trip up the windward coast. The rolling hills are really a lot of work. We end up pedaling on a stretch along the Atlantic, complete with roaring waves and a magical landscape that makes all the huffing and puffing worth it. What a ride! We head back to the capital Kingstown. Cycling is the best way to explore this bustling colonial town. Here you have with buildings from the 18th century from the days when the English and the French were fighting over St Vincent’s sugar. On my cycling adventure I fall upon an unexpected architectural surprise, St. Mary’s church. This is a relaxing adventure with Fantasea Tours. With a small party we head down to the Tobago Cays, a group of 5 deserted islands in the Southern Grenadines. Our party is experiencing the gentle breezes, the gentle rum and the balmy air plus the finest powdery beaches, the consistency of confectioner’s sugar. St Vincent and the Grenadines is also one of the best places to have a sailing adventure. This 42-foot sloop sleeps six, has hot and cold showers, cell phones, depth sounder and even a barbecue. The islands are in a line from the north to the south but the prevailing wind from the east. Which means that you’re always sailing on a beam. You never really have to sail too hard upwind, or you’re not sailing too much downwind. You’re doing most of your stuff with the wind from the side which is a nice fast comfortable point to sail. Yes I can sail, with Philippe prompting me on every move. Plus I learned that you shouldn’t oversheet the main sail. Okay. I’m on the way to mastering the lingo. I’ll be back to get my license soon. Most Carnivals are in February but Vincentians are different. So Vinci Mas, St Vincent Carnival is in the heat of Summer. Vinci Mas means Vincentian Masquerade and is open to everyone. The Buccaneers won best costume band last year, so for a 100 dollars I get myself a Buccaneer costume and I’m in. Vinci Mas is a contest for the best costume band but it’s also an extreme adventure: I plunge in the midst of several thousand people right behind a truck stacked with speakers blasting the same 3 winning Soca songs for 10 hours straight under the blazing sun. The whole trip is hypnotic, deafening and a total workout. I drink 22 bottle of water and sweat it all out… The dictionary says adventure is a hazardous undertaking and also a stirring experience. I lost my hearing for 3 days, I nearly passed out from the heat and lost 3 pounds in a day. So what? It was an experience I’ll never, ever forget. less

The medieval castle from the days of the Crusades is at the entrance of its beautiful harbor. So is 4 star Almyra Hotel built right on the water facing it. The Church of the Holy Chrisopolitissa dates from the 13th century. Many pillars still standing are believed to be part of the old roman forum. Here is the pillar of St Paul where according to tradition St Paul was chained and flogged for preaching Christianity At night Paphos comes alive. The Paphos castle once the fort of the knights of St John welcomes culture. During the summer operas are performed there it with the open seas as a backdrop. This is a windy setting for music but uniquely dramatic. The Kato Pafhos archaeological site became a UNESCO World Heritage Site 1980. Spread over a vast area, The Tombs of the Kings are these impressive underground tombs carved out of solid rock dating back to the 4th century BC. Archeologists are busy uncovering remarkable mosaics. Every Roman villa built here in the 2nd, 3rd and to 4th century had elaborate mosaic floor, which have been amazingly preserved. The mosaics tell us that Cyprus has been cultivating wine for 2,500 years. In a village near Paphos at the Aphrodite delight factory one can see the making of a typical Cyprus sweet called loukkoumi. Although loukumi is made all over the world the only protected geographical area of the European union is Yeroskipou, home to the authentic Cypriot sweet. The western coast is full of coves and secluded beaches with some of the most pristine waters in the Mediterranean. Further up is the port of Latchi. This is a fishing town with some great seafood to taste at its outdoor restaurant. Nearby is the Hotel Anassa a 5 star luxury hotel with sweeping views of the bay North of Paphos is the mountain village of Kathika which has an ideal climate for grape growing The Sterna winery a small artisan like winery typical of the area which use local varieties of grapes Mavro and Xynistery South of Pafhos is the Rock of Aphrodite, where according to legend Aphrodite the goddess of love sprung out of the water. On the way to Limassol is the temple of Apollo Hylates one of the best-preserved archeological sites on the island. What remains of the temple is impressive as well as theater of nearby Kourion and its mosaics The Trodos mountains are the main wine-growing region of Cyprus due to the elevation and the quality of the soil. The village of Kakopetria is a main tourist attraction It’s vintage time and OLYMPUS winery in the Trodos mountains is busy picking grapes. The Kolossi castle in the middle of vineyards and sugar cane plantations was occupied by the Knights of St John after the Crusades. The knights produced here for the first time the well-known dessert wine called commanderia. In Limassol it 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. less

Santiago’s Metro is world class. The stations are clean, large and well lit. The trains run on a tight schedule. Television monitors on the platform tell you when the next train is due. It was independence day, and the streets were quiet. Most shops had closed for the holiday. I returned to the Plaza de Armas to record independence day celebrations. The plaza was mostly cordoned off by police. It is a Chilean Independence Day tradition for the President, the military elite, and other high government officials to attend church at the Metropolitan Cathedral on the plaza square. The appearance of the president comes with much fanfare. Two regiments of Chilean soldiers marched and paraded around the square. One of the regiments dressed in grey ceremonial uniforms with black boots. Their shiny grey helmets eerily resembled those worn by the Wermacht soldiers of Germany in World War II. While the band played patriotic music, I perched myself on a monument and had a perfect view of the plaza. Sure enough, President Ricardo Lagos arrived in an open-air limo. Lagos stood in the back seat of the convertible wearing a grey suit with a broad, red, white and blue ribbon, waving to the crowd. As the motorcade turned the corner it passed just a few feet from my camera. www.frakesproductions.com less

Along the banks of the river, the presence of swamps and lakes provide a rich growing area for crops such as legumes, chillies, mustard, sesame, sugarcane, and jute.

According to legend it was where the Gods gathered to plan the creation of man. Construction of Teotihuacán commenced around 300 BC, with the Pyramid of the Sun built by 150 BC. The city reached its zenith approx. 150--450 A.D., when it was the center of an influential culture. At its height the city covered over 30 square km, and housed a population of as many as 200,000. The central avenue is called "Avenue of the Dead". The city contained palaces, apartment buildings, a marketplace, huge pyramids and temples used for worship. Teotihuacán was a place of pilgrimage in Aztec times, who identified it with the myth of Tollan, the place where the sun was created. Around 750 A.D., much of the city was burned, possibly during an invasion or a rebellion. less
