I know I hated walking to school every day. I would always hope that my mom would drive me, or I would get a lift from a friend. But after seeing these pictures I have nothing to complain about, as these kids get to and from school with some flying fox commuting.

Using a zipline, and traveling faster than 62 k/h with a harrowing 400 m drop below them, this is the only way for Columbia's most isolated kids to get to school, with the younger children being put into sacks for the journey across. At least they will polish up on their tight rope skills with this flying fox commuting. Stats for Zipline School Commutes Trending: Older & Average
