Turkey's Coast, Cappadocia & Istanbul (Episode #505)

KQED Life: Sat, Nov 17, 2012 -- 5:00 PM

Host Darley Newman travels throughout the small, Middle Eastern country of Jordan to experience culture, history and adventure. While in the capital city of Amman, Darley's local guide Ibrahim leads to a bustling downtown market and shopping district. In an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour, viewers learn about the history and characteristics of the Arabian breed in Darley's interview with HRH Princess Alia at the Royal Stables in Amman. From Amman, Darley heads to the Dana Nature Reserve, where she spends the night in an eco-friendly camp before riding through the historic stone village of Dana with a local. Next, Darley visits Madaba, a town known for its mosaics, before standing atop Mount Nebo, where Moses saw the Holy Land. On a multi-day ride through the Wadi Rum Desert, made famous by the epic film Lawrence of Arabia, Darley learns about Bedouin culture as she treks on horseback and camelback. The episode ends in the ancient Roman city of Jerash where Darley, dressed in Roman garb, hops a ride on a horse-drawn chariot.
