    Impressive. My goal has been to cruise once around the world, and with cruise buffets being what they are, there is no way that would help my blood pressure. Thanks for your post on sub 3% GDP since the Great Recession. Confirmed my suspicions in an email argument I was defending myself on. Great photography too. Keep on walking/cycling – an ambitious and impressive goal.
