The best world is one in which all countries cooperate with one another to kind of meet each other's needs and be partners in the process.
I've been all over the world on my own because, as a scientist, you travel a great deal if your work is reasonably successful or published.

I wanted to be a journalist, I thought it was glamorous and that I'd meet beautiful women in the rain.
Actors are steeped in a world of agents and where the next job is coming from and what are their expenses and what is the hotel like.
