Before signing off for the bank holiday weekend, we wanted to draw your attention to several key stories and trends from the last few weeks. We will be back on Tuesday morning with a new feature for you. Don’t forget to join us on Wednesday afternoon for the #KRQA, where we will be discussing kidnapping in Mexico. (More details here.)

We recently tweaked the sidebar to make it easier for you to research destinations – just type in where (or what) you want to know about and, if we’ve covered it, the results will appear.
