"Waterfall for a dishwasher"

Picture from here.

Some of our dearest friends that we made while living in Kenya were the Conways. The Conways have two sons, who grew up in Kenya. We often dream of what it would be like to raise our children in Kenya. We believe that it would open their eyes to an entirely new world. David spoke with their oldest son, Andrew, yesterday and learned about his last big adventure. Andrew now attends ACU and for his spring semester, he traveled to Australia with the National Outdoor Leadership School. "For the Australia program the students canoed for 40 days, backpacked for 23 days and lived with Aborigine guides on an island for seven days." You can read about his adventures here. It's not what most parents expect their children to do when they go off to college, but I find it to be so amazing that a college student would take this challenge and discover a simpler way of living.
