Three Cups of Tea

Three Cups of Tea - Greg Mortenson - have you read it.

"You must make time to have three cups of tea with us. The first time you share tea with a Balti you are a stranger. The second time you take tea you are an honored guest. The third time you share a cup of tea, you become family and for our family we are prepared to do anything."

He was a mountaineer - was climbing K2 in the Karakoram and fell ill. Villagers looked after him and in return he built them a school. This is an area where the Taliban recruit. He raised funds and built the school, moved on and built others - founded the Central Asia Institute.

This is no ordinary story - no ordinary man. He is an American in Pakistan, doing what he can, one school at a time.
