Small world. . .

Just sailing part Felixstowe's vast container port cranes on the way to Cowes. I'm always struck when passing by how small the world is as you see containers from every corner of the globe. This trade is so automated, so run of the mill. It is clear that geographical proximity matters a lot less now - and the implications of that for the old concept of a nation state are interesting, aren't they?.
