Travel times and social impact[edit]

It would be interesting to have information on typical travel times between, say:

  • Bejing and Delhi
  • Delhi and London
  • London and New York
  • New York and San Francisco
  • Cairo and Capetown

in the eras of travel by foot, animal, cart, ship, railroad, automobile, and jet. It would also be interesting to put in context these changes - for example, the effect on globalization, politicis, social contacts, etc. -- Beland (talk) 03:06, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
