It’s certainly a bit more complicated, but makes a point.

-Last year I was in Bogota and blown away by seeing what effect great Infrastructure can have on peoples’ life and how people feel about their city.

The #TransMilenio in Bogota is a good example, but if you look at the #MetroBus in Buenos Aires you see, that it is not just about the idea, but really about a good execution with attention to detail.

Another one on the power of soccer.

Everywhere I have been in the world I have found beautiful soccer fields and people that come together to play.

The beauty of soccer. It simply does not matter where you are.

Other than music there is no medium I can think of that is capable of connecting people from all classes, backgrounds and cultures on so many levels, so quickly.

Can you think of something else?
