Hard to believe that the year has almost come to an end. Dopplr just sent me an email to let me know that I took 44 trips to 34 cities in 2008. That’s a lot of city. One of the most frustrating parts of living life at such a fast pace is that you can easily miss all the amazing sights passing by the window.

Some of my warmest memories from the past year are from Medellín – especially hanging out with the kids from HiperBarrio. This Saturday evening they’re hosting a party to raise funds to finish building Suso’s new house.

So inspiring.
