excellent. to the point. perception is about resources.

few more words on the distances:

it would be interesting to see the radius of the people on the geographical south.

according to world tourism org 80%of travellers come from just twenty countries of the world so other places must be virtually unreachable for them. tourism is privileged characteristic of the world's Minority, just as internet is.

travel is an essential, fundamental component of the consumer lifestyle.
