are prominent in business, farming, and tourism or as governmental officials. For example, the first post-independence mayor of Windhoek was a German Namibian. The interests of the community are usually voiced through Africa's only German-speaking daily, ''Die Allgemeine Zeitung''. The legacy of German colonialization in Namibia can also be seen in the Lutheran Church (Evangelical Lutheran Church in Namibia), which is the largest religious denomination in the country. Production Director John Moore scouted locations in Morocco and Australia before looking at, and quickly choosing, Namibia as the crash site. "Where most of the film takes place, was only a 20 minute-drive from the coastal town of Swakopmund." Lovgren, Stefan. "Africa Desert Is Bad Guy in "Flight of the Phoenix." ''National Geographic (National Geographic (magazine)),'' December 17, 2004. Retrieved: October 3, 2010. The Namib Desert location caused problems: cameras and other equipment had to be constantly cleaned of sand, and a "couple of hundred people were employed as 'dune groomers'" so that visual continuity (Continuity (fiction)) could be maintained. '''Henties Bay''' (English (English language), literally: ''Henty's Bay''. Afrikaans: ''Hentiesbaai'', German (German language): ''Hentiesbucht'') is a coastal town in Erongo Region, Namibia.

Baalbek

on the Phoenician coast since 15 BC. Work on the religious complex there lasted over a century and a half and was never completed. The dedication of the present temple ruins, the largest religious building in the entire Roman empire, dates from the reign of Septimius Severus (193-211 AD), whose coins first show the two temples. In commemoration, no doubt, of the dedication of the new sanctuaries, Severus conferred the rights of the ''ius Italicum'' on the city. thumb Temple of Venus, Baalbeck, 1891 (File:Temple of Venus, Baalbek, 1891.jpg) Today, only six Corinthian columns (Corinthian order) remain standing. Eight more were disassembled and shipped to Constantinople under Justinian's orders circa 532-537 CE, for his basilica of Hagia Sophia. The greatest of the three temples was sacred to Jupiter Baal, ("Heliopolitan Zeus"), identified here with the sun, and was constructed during the first century AD (completed circa 60 AD) on top of a podium and foundations presumably from a previous temple of undetermined origin or date. Rowland Jr, Benjamin "The Vine-Scroll in Gandhāra", ''Artibus Asaie'' Vol. 19, No. 3 4 (1956), pp. 353–361 "It is apparent from a graffito on one of the columns of the Temple of Jupiter that that building was nearing completion in 60 A.D." Lohmann, Daniel., Giant Strides towards Monumentality - The architecture of the Jupiter Sanctuary in Baalbek Heliopolis, Bolletino di Archaologia, Volume Speciale, 2010, pp. 29-30 "Due to the lack of remains of temple architecture, it can be assumed that the temple this terrace was built for was never completed or entirely destroyed before any new construction started." With it were associated a temple to Venus (Venus (goddess)) and a lesser temple in honor of Bacchus (Dionysus) (though it was traditionally referred to as the "Temple of the Sun" by Neoclassical visitors, who saw it as the best-preserved Roman temple in the world – it is surrounded by forty-two columns nearly 20 meters in height). Thus three Eastern deities were worshipped in Roman guise: thundering Jove, the god of storms, stood in for Baal-Hadad, Venus for ‘Ashtart (`Ashtart) and Bacchus for Anatolian Dionysus. The original number of Jupiter columns was 54 columns. The architrave and frieze blocks weigh up to 60 tons each, and one corner block over 100 tons, all of them raised to a height of Wikipedia:Baalbek Commons:Baalbek
