Milwaukee: The Little City that Could

How cool is Milwaukee?

Two weeks ago I got to meet Shirin Ebadi, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, of which I still owe you a blog recap. Today I get to meet Nelson Melo, a Columbian coffee farmer featured along with Milwaukee's own Alterra on The Discovery Channel's How Stuff Works - Coffee. (it aired Jan. 22nd, and I can't find the full episode online)

This Little City that Could never ceases to amaze me. Organizations around the area work hard to bring in the best and the brightest from around the world, so that we, the folks who live here, can learn and grow. As an academic at heart, I appreciate that.
