In November 2009 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, my brother and I met heaps of cool people at the hostel, Red Palm. If you recall, this was the hostel where I met Sheila. And through social network services, such as Facebook, we've managed to stay in touch with everyone.
Fast forward one year.
Recently, it was sort of a Red Palm reunion as my Canadian friend Jason, who, after leaving Malaysia and spending one year working in Australia, came to visit Sheila, Elaine, and I in the Philippines. Jason will be here through mid-February before continuing his travels to South America.
Facebook has really played an integral role during my travels, allowing me to keep in touch with people that I've met.
