Mr. Harris. I hope you get to read this message. Thank you for the great footage and reporting on Colombia. I wanted to ask/suggest you cut one more clip. Perhaps a fast flash collage of images of Colombia but with non-rural scenery. Most people have the impression that Colombian cities are underdeveloped. To a certain extent, media is to blame for that because the scenery is pretty and better for artistic value. People in the US still ask me to this day if there are buildings with elevators in Colombia. They ask If there are highways, if there are modern commodities. Your Drone shot of Bogota shows some of the skyscrapers, but then you film the street level of "La Candelaria" which is colonial and culturally historic. You filmed in the farmers market of the city, and don't get me wrong, that is great but most people don't realize there are thousands of grocery markets that are more modern and some to the same level of supermarkets like Kroger, Publix or Wegmans. Are you up for the challenge to stitch together some of those editing cutting floor shots?.

With over 800 military bases around the globe, the US is easily the most powerful nation on earth. But it wasn't always this way. The US once played an insignificant role in global affairs. In this 8-minute video, you can see the transformation.
