   He stayed with families in every country he has visited but for a few exceptions e.g. North Korea.

   Even though in many Third World countries it's almost impossible to travel without paying bribes, he has been able to travel to every nation in the world including every African Country without ever paying a bribe, even once.
   Often he has been detained at borders & sometimes sent back, but he never paid extra.

If everyone takes a stand like this, then we will see corruption slowly vanish."
