This is a friend's boy. Before he started walking from Italy to China he rode his bicycle from here to Patagonia and back. He even stopped to visit at our house in Chile on the way.
The story about being in a boat that sunk after being hit by a whale is absolutely true.
His mother and I were at the U together, we were pregnant together, raised our kids together. It's always remarkable to see your children and those close to you grow up, but this adventure goes above and beyond the usual.
