  1. George, I saw your photographs featured on CNN and had to send you a note of thanks. There are areas of the world that are essentially out of sight for many people and your images and story helps to bring people together. I commend your work and hope you can share more of your images. I especially like what you said about the train mechanic. It would be an interesting piece to interview that guy, or guys like him, and show that most people are just trying to live their lives.

    Thanks again.
