Deb, I think you are just right and I, as a traveler and as a part of this one world, think it is wonderful to express opinions of a country as a whole, with its good and its bad side, not just as collection of exquisite postcard-like landscapes and five star hotels (about which, of course, I also like to hear about!) Otherwise this whole traveling thing becomes as sterilized as an operating room. Marta
