Published in 2010, this travelogue shows us what Syria was like before the Civil War took over. One wonders how much of ancient Syria survives after the fighting and destruction leveled by ISIS.

This one like "Vietnam" suffers in only one thing. They both need to have close Captioning so that the Deaf could enjoy them also!

I am more impressed on Bobby Chinn's portion - the culinary part. The guy's a genius in hosting a show - much, much better than anthony Bourdain - can't stand his cockiness and cold aura. Bobby, on the contrary, exudes a certain pizazz, a tinge of flamboyance, oozing with energy and fun... a guy to look out in cooking shows!
