Antonio first contacted me over a month ago, with a Drupal support question — by sheer coincidence, this happened to be just when I'd arrived in Mexico. Antonio is the leader of the Linux and Open Source community here in Peru; and he knows everyone, everywhere, who's a part of this community.
Antonio, head geek of Peru.
I feel that Antonio has become my de facto "guardian angel" for this trip: he connected me with Mauricio in Mexico; he's introduced me to tonnes of people here in Lima; and he has other contacts all over South America for me to meet! Talk about finding the right person at the right time.
