This is an eglish translation of a letter written by Felipe Cubillos, a Chilean entrepreneur. Mr. Cubillos died recently in a airplane crash as he was travelling to Juan Fernandez in order to cooperate with the post earthquake rebuilding effort. I have included my favorite quotes, the rest of the letter is available here
