Pascale Harter presents correspondents' personal stories, insights and experiences from around the world. In this edition, Rupert Wingfield revisits the site of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster and sees the cleanup is still going on - and still huge - even two years later. There are lingering worries about radiation and local communities are nowhere near 'back to normal'. So can it really be described as a success story - or proof that nuclear power is safe? Still, some witnesses think it could have all gone so very much worse. Mattia Cabitza is in Cali, weighing up why Colombia's cosmetic surgery industry is burgeoning and how it's attracting foreign clients too. It's big business now - even if the curves and the implants themselves are actually getting smaller.
