Hello, my name is Apostolos and I was born again on the sixth of February 2009 in a hospital in Mexico. These are the somewhat intense memories from the first one and a half months of my new life.

The author had a mid-air collision with a fellow competitor at 10,000 feet while participating in the 2009 World Paragliding Championships in Mexico, as a member of the Greek National Team. Two thirds of The Friend From Mexico describes the author's near-death experience while in induced coma, and the rest of the book describes the important events while in an intensive care unit and his repatriation to Greece.
