When I we went to the Heifer farm, we made a fire. In Tibet, we used the “tepee method”. This method makes the wood line up like a Native American tepee, not like toilet paper. Then we lit a match inside the tepee. It took awhile, but after about a billion tries we got the fire to light. After we did, it stayed lit as long as it was needed. Gathering sticks, arranging them, lighting them and cooking over it to receive a not so nutritious result is a lot harder then using a microwave and waiting 30 seconds to eat huh?
