Cito Beltran wrote in his column that there seems to be some impressions that opinion columnists like him should avoid deviating by writing travelogues. According to him, travelogues are important because it showcases how things are done elsewhere and hopefully, we will learn and improve our own ways. This reminds me how trains arrive and depart exactly according to schedule in some countries, how even buses are on time at every minor stop , how Brazil’s elevated bus stops prevents people from boarding and unloading in unauthorized areas, etc., etc.. Keep it up Cito!
I know that our leaders are smart and well travelled. Despite that, I wonder why things continue to be done using the old and ineffective ways down here.
