Three Cups of Tea

There are not adequate words to describe the story I have just finished reading (hence no recent knitting to show). Please read Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin. It is the most remarkable story of one man's successful efforts to establish schools (particularly for girls) in Afganistan and Pakistan - "One man's mission to promote peace...one school at a time" This story takes place in the years leading up to and following 9/11. It will bring tears to your heart. It is an adventure, a romance and an inspiration - all a true story of the power of one. Visit the Central Asia Institute for more information about the mission.
