Just shortly, I've taken notice of the unusual, but very excellent initiatives of Middle-and-South-American countries regarding the Iran and IAEA and also the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict!
The World should regard these "attempts" continuously as the World "gets richer" by other nations more conscious approach to powers and politics with the derived initiative, with thanks to (former) Pres. Lula of Brazil.
Lately, I've also learnt about an increasing cooperation between India and Israel, by the Norwegian edition of Le Monde (Diplomatique) that's also new.
This is all subject to celebration as much as China's superiority, by my opinion, in Africa (over USA and Europe)! Eccentric (to former powers and powerplays)? Yesss!!! Hurray!!!

It may very well be that the World gets better and travelling is probably getting more fun too! Cheers!
