3 cups of tea

We met a new friend last night for a meeting about all things bricks + cartwheels. We had a lovely evening chatting , discussing and planning..... this new friend recommended a book for us to read. Its called 3 cups of tea by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin, and it does sound like a great read. The front cover is in itself enticing enough.

Its about a man who stumbles across a tiny village in the mountains of Pakistan. The village was unbelievably poor and the children had no teacher or school. When he left this village he promised them he would come back and build them a school. Twelve years later he's built 55 schools in Pakistan.

Sounds pretty inspiring huh? I'm going to buy it as soon as i can!
