So long TwentyEleven: what a year it has been…

What a year 2011 has been. We’ve seen the full monty of extraordinary events this year… everything from revolutionary political uprisings to tumultuous riots on our doorstep… unseen before natural disasters that have crippled nations to the fall from financial grace of Europe.
