“I’ve washed our underwear in some of the most beautiful settings in the world- the Amazon, Milford Sound in New Zealand, various islands in the South Pacific, the jungles of Borneo, the Galapagos, along the Inca trail to Machu Picchu,- but, in the end, it is still just scrubbing underwear, no matter what your view.” (p. 199 of Don’t Try This at Home).
