!! OMG, More fun than the bus: Children attend school via zipline !!

In rural Colombia, a bunch of small children fly to school by ziplines 1,300 feet off the ground. Little Daisy Mora– 9 years old and pictured above– carries her little brother in a cloth sack as she zooms across a giant ravine on her way to class.
Meanwhile, back in the USA, you can get arrested for letting your children go to the mall by themselves.)

  1. I know Colombia is fairly urban in general but is the entire country urban? It seems like if you’re taking a zipline to school you’re not exactly in Bogota. (I think the article said Bogota was the closest city but it’s obviously far enough away if there aren’t regular roads or transportation…)

  2. As a realluy offended Colombian citizen, let me tell you. There’s nothing rural about Colombia..get your writting straight and try not offending others with those kind of comments.
    Still, huuge fan over here!
