Scots actor McGregor">Ewan McGregor and his actor pal Charley Boorman have taken time out of their epic motorcycle journey to visit a United Nation Children's Fund charity project in Ethiopia. The pair are travelling the length of the planet on motorbikes, starting at John O'Groats in Scotland and ending at Cape Town, South Africa. Last Friday (29Jun07), MCGregor and Boorman parked their bikes to meet the residents of Zalambasa, where many people have lost limbs through dangerous landmine explosions. MCGregor says, ''We're here in Zalambasa and we've been looking at landmine issues today with Unicef. It's been just extraordinary to meet kids who've lost legs and had horrible accidents with landmines, and it's been incredible. The kids are just great. "UNICEF are doing amazing things here. They're helping these groups of kids to be mine aware, and using drama and workshops to teach children in all of the schools in the area to be aware of mines and what to do if they find one, and if somebody's hurt, not to rush in - all of the essential things that kids need to know."

I like Ewan, first of all, for one reason: although he's a good actor and he's admired for that, he's not full of himself. He prefers spend a part of his time thinking how to help people that are less lucky.
