We arrived in Santa Cruz late at night. My friends and I found a questionable hotel, and after failed negotiations for a room, we arrived at our new destination just across the street. After getting comfortable, we cracked open some beers and let the mayhem begin. Northwest Africa was volatile. Siam was feeling tense. Alaska was, well, Alaska. The Ukraine was weak, but not too much so. Things were tense, but somehow there was a sense of well-being in the air. Deals were made, deals were broken, such is life when attempting to dominate the globe. Sun Tzu would be proud.
Take a Risk.
