While most of the world is distracted by events in Korea, Iraq, Syria and elsewhere, a revolution is forming in South America's second largest country.
Strategy documents from an eminent consultancy circulating in the highest level of political circles around the President of the United States and the Governor of California have recently come into my possession.
Going abroad has, once again, reaffirmed just how much I love my own country, and also how much I enjoy, and can learn, from the rest of the world. Here are three things traveling abroad brought into sharper focus for me:
