Africa, Inc.
Stephen Hayes,
President of the Corporate Council of Africa
The Chinese truly are brilliant. They are investing heavily in Africa, undertaking huge infrastructure builds and erecting manufacturing plants. And just how will all this activity possibly help to relieve population pressures in China? Listen here for the stunning (yet simple) answer.

Tales of the Cocktail
Ann Tuennerman,
Founder and Owner of Tales of the Cocktail
And you thought the Hurricane was the most popular drink in New Orleans? Not! Ann gives us some great tips on mixology in the Big Easy, tells us about a fantastic annual event coming up next month in our beloved NOLA, and let’s us know what the heck a Sazerac is! Where y'at!    Continued.

Take Two Aspirins and Call Me From Thailand
Josef Woodman,
Author of Patients Beyond Borders
The global economy here on Planet Earth usually involves international trade in tangible products and goods of some kind. More and more, it also includes seeking professional medical services in foreign countries. Now, people in need of major surgery or seeking state-of-the-art treatment for their illnesses are looking at options outside their native lands.

Breezin’ with SuperClubs
Greg Baxter,
District Sales Manager SuperClubs
Sandy and Greg shoot the breeze about, well, Breezes! You'll be hearing a lot more about SuperClubs and its plan to regroup and consolidate several of its resort brands under the Breezes brand. And, as all of that is happening at SuperClubs, there are some really super, all-inclusive vacation deals to be had at many of these fabulous resorts.  Continued.

The Chinese Way
Christina Huo
, General Manager, China One Call
Never again will you have to say, “Sorry, I don’t speak Chinese!” or for that matter, if you are Chinese, you never have to say "I don't speak English" With technology as simple as a cell phone combined with a staff of brilliant and savvy interpreters, ChinaOneCall

This week we received a great photo from our friend Godlisten Moshi, a guide on Mt. Kiliminjaro. Godlisten is in the foreground on the left side. He has guided this big group to the Mt. Kilimanjaro Summit.
He wishes us and our audiences the best from 19,340 feet on the roof top of Africa!!

Travel Promotion Act Update
Bruce Bommarito, COO and Executive Vice President of the US Travel Association
Our long time friend and colleague joins us from Washington, DC, for an update on all things travel related and there is A LOT to talk about. It seems like the US Congress might actually be starting to understand and appreciate the huge economic engine that travel and tourism represent. Get the latest developments on this fantastic revelation!

World Music Mogul
Dan Storper, CEO and Founder of Putumayo World Music
Putumayo is the name of a beautiful river valley in Colombia. It is also the namesake of Putumayo World Music, established in 1993 to introduce people to the music of the world’s cultures. From a humble retail shop in Manhattan to worldwide sales of more than 20 million CDs, this is a great story of success in making a business out of the celebration of cultural diversity.

Have a great week and keep it under ninety and please do keep those seatbelts fastened, they do save lives.

Warm regards,

Sandy Dhuyvetter
