Last year I began this small youtube series to counterbalance the message of corporate news. If you watch or read "the news" you'll quickly get the impression that our world is a hostile place where violence perpetually occurs. Is that true?
From my experience as a world traveler, what is happening in the world is usually the sublime hum of humanity puttering along: Friends chatting at cafes, drivers stressing on their way to work, people falling in our out of love, children being raised, projects and work underway, etc. This series is designed to subtly call attention to the tactics of big news and adjust our focus.
This episode is a bit of a departure. It capitalizes on the general American ignorance of world geography. Enjoy and if you have more curiosity about the series look here.

The road has been my greatest teacher.. challenging stagnant beliefs, disarming prejudices, and developing understanding of others. I hope the content on this blog will bring a sliver of that juju to you.
