Rundown for the Week of May 20, 2000
Cambodia: Haunted by History

Visitors to New Orleans can re-live a bygone era of life along the
Mississippi river aboard a steam paddle-wheeler, the S.S. Natchez.

captains left on the river and he's also one of the few musicians who
still plays the old-fashioned calliope. The Savvy Traveler's Lex
Gillespie went to meet him.
