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

It enshrines a section of bedrock where Jesus is said to have prayed before his arrest. The Garden of Gethsemane is at the foot of the Mount of Olives. According to the Gospels on the night of His betrayal our Lord left the city of Jerusalem and crossed through the Kidron Valley and into the Garden of Gethsemane (Matt. 26:36; John 18:1). This was a favorite spot of Jesus and where he spent his last night. The name "Gethsemane" is derived from the Hebrew words "Gat", which means "a place for pressing" and "Shemanim", which means "oils." the Garden of Gethsemane was where olives from the Mount of Olives were pressed into oil. According to the Gospels after the Last Supper, Jesus came to this garden with his disciples to pray and to let himself be arrested (John 18:2-12), thus setting in motion the events that led to his crucifixion the next day. There are eight olive trees in this garden that may be at least 2,000 - 3,000 years old. They still bear fruit. If they are not the actual trees in the area where Jesus prayed, then they could conceivably have been young saplings when Jesus came here.(Matt. 26:36; Mark 14:32; John 18:1). 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
