We’re having an extended cold snap (but no snow!) here in Philadelphia. And though it is nothing compared to that experienced in Maine right now, I have a DVD escape for you. This week, my wife and I watched Michael Palin’s 4 part series on his trip through the Sahara. You can feel the heat at times. You might think this a boring documentary but he finds a lot of life in the villages and nomads that take him through the desert. He begins in Morocco and circles around through a number of countries. You learn of people groups, nations, and political stuff as well as seeing some stark beauty. And on top of it, you get to enjoy Michael’s quirky humor (former member of Monty Python).
Here’s a link to his site and info about the documentary. We got it from our local library. http://www.palinstravels.co.uk/static-128
