With the greatest of ease: Tire swing!

The installation process made me laugh out loud! African men shimmy up our avocado tree, or any tree, for that matter, with amazing speed. (Our guard often talks to the eMi guard next door while the guard hangs in eMi's tree.) I did ask Godfrey to make the swing "mzungu safe"--i.e. safe enough that even ex-pats who have grown up with miles of safety-based litigation would feel peaceful if their kid gave it a go. So far, so good.

This is a great way for the kids to remember their grandparents' home, which had a fantastic one of these.

I know I'm just a mom, but...our house just gained about ten points on the coolness scale.
