We interrupt this blog* to bring you a book recommendation.
Several months ago I came across this recommendation for a good read on Adventures in Paradise. I finally got a hold of the book and I loved it.
Have you ever read something that made you question your day to day actions and your impact on the world. This book will make you do that . Greg Mortenson is able to take an improbable promise to an impoverished village and overcome doubt, indifference, cultural differences and political realities to create a lasting legacy and then do it again and again. The CAI does amazing work for education and women in an area of the world that everyone else has forgotten or only sees as a source of future terrorists.
*The Northeaster passing through here today has me holed up and knitting and not feeling like going out to find wireless Internet to download pictures.
