oh, did I tell you I've got my very own wheeeeeeeesh plonk now
I'd certainly HOPE SO!!! otherwise your place would be a rubbish dump by now!!!
It's much different in terms of cultural/historical significance. I don't know if Marat cares about that. But to me, the Himalayas are not just mountains, but it is a place of mythic proportion. I'm not saying that mountains in Canada are not nice or adventurous enough. But I guess the Himalayas are considered almost a sacred place, and going up there is equivalent to a pilgrimage. It's like going to on an expedition in a desert in Arizona and in the Sahara... not the same thing. Although both are deserts.
Of course Marat might just see it as the most challenging adventure. But I doubt that someone like him, with his extensive reading, wouldn't have on his mind at all the cultural significance of the Himalayas. That boy is probably a closeted romantic after all.
but we already knew that
My today's google alert:
Marat Safin and Nikolay Davidenko wil be present at the Davis cup tie....
I cannot believe Marat is actually going to risk his limbs and live by going climbing this mountain. I mean you'd have to be totaly naieve to think you could survive a thing like that,being so unexperienced, he would endanger the whole expedition.
I bet this is "much ado about nothing"
Maybe he'll join the expedition for a bit but if he really will go all the way, I very much doubt it. He is not suicidel, is he?
my google alerts gave the mountain climbing site...
I suggest he skips day 13-35
