Fun Fact

While spending a semester in East Africa, Andrew spent time living with the Hadzabe, a nomadic tribe. This included hunting expeditions. Though he stalked giraffe and watched his guide come very close to downing a zebra, the only thing that was inevitably caught was a pregnant rock hyrax. He declined to partake in the stew that was created out of all of its innards.
