In the Wadi Rum desert he joins guests at a Bedouin wedding. Before traveling south to the ruins of Petra he rides a camel and has a swim in the Dead Sea.
After Jordan, Ian travels on to Lebanon. In Beirut he rides with a motorbike brigade, then heads south into the occupied zone where he talks to the UN peacekeeping forces.
Ian’s next destination is Baalbeck in the fertile Bekaa valley, one of the most spectacular Roman temples in the world. It was a major place of worship sacred to the god Jupiter.
Ian begins his visit to Syria in Damascus, where he observes the ‘jumping sufis’ experiencing religious ecstasy in a mosque, and relaxes in a Turkish bath.
In Aleppo, Ian goes shopping in a large outside market called a Souk, then goes to see some clay beehive style houses nearby. He is introduced to the world of the ‘whirling dervishes’, one of Islam’s important mystical orders, inspired in the 13th Century by the poet Mevlana Rumi.
The final leg of his journey takes Ian south east to the ancient Roman desert town Palmyra. He ends his trip in the peace and quiet of a desert monastery.Runtime: 52 minutes per showFORMAT: H.264 MP4 *Plays on Roku, AppleTV, Playstation, Xbox, Chromecast, Firestick, Mac, PC, Cell Phone, or TabletTo those who might wish to share or "torrent" these shows for free: Please remember we are not some huge, anonymous conglomerate.
