~ By Jeff Liffmann   In August of 2009, I made a spontaneous decision with a few friends to take a trip from Buenos Aires, Argentina to the Patagonian ski resort of Bariloche.

MC Yogi's "Give Love" is a song we hear around the Wanderlust office a lot, but when we heard the opening bars of the song in this fan-created video from Queen Street Yoga, we were totally unprepared for the sheer enthusiasm and imagination that would unfold in the ensuing three and a half minutes of this version.
