Oaxaca, Mexico -- One year ago, you may have driven right by him on Route 7. You would have never known that Joseph Michael Kai-Tsu Liu Roqueni was on a quest to run barefoot (mostly) from Montreal to Ushuaia, Argentina otherwise known as the end of the world. Liu Roqueni is still going. We met him for the first time a year ago this week in Milton. Today he is south of Oaxaca, Mexico. One thing he's learned through 3 countries and nearly 3,000 miles is that people are good.
