SANS Notes 02-05-2016

Colombia travelers and other interested parties:

The SANS Education Committee presents "The Two Escobars" at the Watertown Public Library on Sunday, February 7, at 2 p.m. This award-winning, thought-provoking documentary from ESPN's 30 for 30 series shows the intersection between soccer (futbol) and the drug cartels in Colombia. Compelling characters, exciting stories and unparalleled soccer footage. Good for understanding more about Colombia's recent history and culture. Optional dinner afterward at Not Your Average Joe's.
