Four Important Life Lessons from a Lost Passport

Sometimes we learn valuable lessons when we least expect them. This is a short story of things I learned while traveling in Ulula del Río.

Naked in China

One afternoon Jack and I found ourselves in Beijing, China. Beijing is the capital of the People's Republic of China and was founded in 1045 BC. With an urban population of about 21 million, we were leaving one gigantic city (Hong Kong) and replacing it with another. As our plane from Hong Kong taxied on... Continue Reading →
