Robert Mellin is a man with a thousand stories.

He once punched a pickpocket and dragged him to a police station in Colombia. He went to Cuba at the collapse of the Soviet Union. He’s traveled — sometimes for years at a time — through Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India. Mellin is now 88 years old, and he’s not slowing down any time soon.
