Three Cups of Tea

Shelfari continues to introduce me to new ideas & books....

I have added Three Cups of Tea: One Man's mission to Promote Peace... One School at a Time to my list of books to read in 2008. Greg Mortensen - the co-author of the book - is an inspirational figure who has started 50+ schools in remote & inaccessible parts of Pakistan & Afghanistan in the past decade through the Central Asia Institute organization.

The title of the Book is derived from a Baltistan proverb:
The first time you share tea with a Balti, you are a stranger. The second time, you are an honored guest. The third time you become family.
