Where in the World is Farris?

No, not Ferris Bueller but Farris Hassan, the young adult with an insatiable hunger to see the world and make it better. Remember a few years ago when he ended up in Iraq?

According to USA Today's On Deadline, Hassan recently called home to tell his mother he was on his way to Afghanistan with a group. I wonder if he traveled with Global Exchange, the group I traveled with? He should be home (South Florida) by now, can't wait to read his impressions and see his photos (I assume he'll post images). He has a pretty thorough plan outlining enriching Afghanistan's educational system and references Afghans4Tomorrow, the group I met with. Check out his site, read about his 2006 research project and be inspired. If only I were younger...
