Latest News
Program:  Barry Schwartz
The Middle East
 
Our own Barry Schwartz told the story of his trip to the Middle East.  He described it as the crossroads of the world, and the most dangerous region of the world.
 
Barry and his wife made an Adventure Travel trip, which took them to three countries, Jordan Egypt and Israel.  It is the only company doing this trip after the Arab Spring.  Our State Department requires that US citizens be protected, which meant having armed guards in all places they traveled.
 
Their route followed that of Moses to the Red Sea in Jordan and Israel.  They visited several sites in Egypt as well.  The area of Mesopotamia was the Fertile Crescent, the cradle of civilization:  scientific, literary, religious, and engineering.  Now this area is barren of all of these, however it was the center of civilization for over 3000 years.  Barry shared a time-line video that showed the change of cultures that governed the region.  They got to visit homes to learn about the lives of those who live there.  The photos he shared highlighted the landscapes and cities in the three countries.  Barry included many history lessons in the presentation.  Thanks, Barry!!!  Great program.
