Northern Ethiopia - Ancient History and Spiritual Present
joseph rosendo's travelscope

Joseph travels to Northern Ethiopia to uncover its ancient history and discover its spiritual present thorough cultural adventures, myths and legends. His path takes him from the monasteries of Lake Tana, the largest lake in Ethiopia, to the castles of King Fasiladas in Gondar, to the stelaes of Axum and the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela. There are World Heritage sites and surprises galore as Joseph traces the lineage of Ethiopia's kings back to the days of Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. In the ancient town of Axum he stands at the threshold of the chapel where Ethiopians believe the Ark of Covenant is housed. In Lalibela he prays with a pilgrim before visiting a local school that is being supported by children in the United States.

About Joseph Rosendo's Travelscope:

The Daytime Emmy-winning travel series Travelscope- now re-titled JOSEPH ROSENDO'S TRAVELSCOPE- scales new heights of adventure, natural splendor and cultural richness this season.

Host Joseph Rosendo journeys from the California coast to the islands of Hong Kong and to Chile's Tierra del Fuego.

Along the way, he encounters the heights of natural beauty in the Cariboo-Chilcotin Coast region of British Columbia, celebrates Christmas in Switzerland and circumnavigates the tip of South America.

The series' hallmark remains the rich cultural interchanges between Joseph and the local population.

He joins the parade of medieval guilds during Zurich's spring festival, shares devotions with a holy man in a rock-hewn church in Lalibela, Ethiopia and explores the mysteries behind the stone figures on Easter Island.
