- Update (added March 15, 2012): Here is an article written in India critquing the geographic literacy of Indians.
Regardless of how global in nature the education was that you received while growing up, it is never to late to learn about about the rest of the world. As adults, one of the best ways that we can learn in person about the rest of the world is by taking the opportunity to physically travel to other lands; to literally roam the roads of lands remote. After all, as Mark Twain once declared, "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness".
Today, March 10, is being observed as National Passport Day in the United States. It is estimated that only about 30% of Americans actually posses a passport. And much of the reason for why this has increased within the past 3 to 4 years is due to the requirements to posses one to cross in to Canada or Mexico.

So, in the spirit of National Passport Day, even though it might be too late to accomplish it today, please make every effort acquire a passport. And once you do, then you can join me in person for a chance in the near future to roam the roads of land remote.
