Torch on Everest

The Olympic Torch made it to the top of the world.

My cynical side is disturbed at the exploitation of the mountain.

My curious side wonders about all the details of executing the climb.

My cynical side tell me that there will be a book out very shortly to answer all of my curious side's questions.

My cynical side tells me you are very correct Beth. I also have very mixed emotions about it all.

You have a lovely way of saying what you need to say in just a few words.
I really liked this one. And like you, I'm in two minds about the event, not sure what to make of it either.

I found this link on the BBC website that may start to answer some of your questions...

Thanks Ruth, that was very interesting. I wondered about the flame in in the low oxygen.
