Replenish your mind and body after a hectic day on the town amid the hotel's all-modern amenities, elegant flair, sophisticated lighting, fine furniture and exotic floral arrangements. O Hotel is located in the heart of Downtown's revitalized urban scene, a few blocks from L.A. Live, Staples Center, the Nokia Theater, the Convention Center and the Walt Disney Concert Hall.

It is 80 miles from Chichen Itza, one of the most impressive Mayan cities. In the 19th century the sisal boom created enormous wealth. In 1900 there were more millionaires in Merida than in Paris. The wealth spurred the construction of mansions all over the city. When nylon replaced sisal in 1930 the economy collapsed, houses were abandoned and fell apart. In the last ten years visitors from Northamerica and Europe have been buying them and restoring them to their original splendor like this mansion in the center of town. 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

Herod the Great built Caesarea Maritima to honor his patron, Caesar Augustus about 25–13 BC. I visited in July, 2007 while recording footage for an upcoming documentary on the life of Apostle Peter. The book of Acts records that in Caesarea there was a man named Cornelius, a centurion of the Italian Cohort. Peter met Cornelius and converted him to Christianity. Caesarea harbor is one of the most significant engineering feats of the ancient world, Herod’s engineers filled barges with sand, floated them into position and then sank them in a circle, thus forming the harbor. Once Roman ships had a safe place to dock, Caesarea became a major seaport. Eventually, time and the sea washed the sand footings away. www.frakesproductions.com less
