If knowledge is gained through experience, surely community is built through fellowship. Since the earliest stops in the trip we have reveled in the satisfaction of getting our hackey sack around the ring of jugglers once, twice and rarely three times; laughing at our “faulty left legs” and taking probably too much pleasure in the occasional hand-grab resulting in punishment via thrown-sack-brutality. We eat together, see and learn together, travel together and hack together. It’s these times of sweat, laughter and exasperation that release so much of the small built-up tensions of the day. Viva la hack and may it spread it’s communal blessings as a contagion that brings both the coordinated and challenged together for many countries and millenia to come.
