The year for peace in Colombia?

I hate turbulence during flights. My palms start sweating, my heart is pounding, and no matter how much I remind myself that it’s ok, I still can’t shake the feeling off. That's exactly how I feel now about the peace process in Colombia. It’s turbulent times. The peace negotiation between the government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) will soon be reaching the deadline of 23 March 2016 that Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos had announced a few months back.
