Burra Sahib

January 25, 2008


Earlier this month Sir Edmund Hillary passed away – he was the first man to climb Mt. Everest, along with his guide Tenzig Norgay. I wanted to honor one of the last few people with a true adventurer spirit! You gotta love a guy who said of his achievement, Nobody climbs mountains for scientific reasons. Science is used to raise money for the expeditions, but you really climb for the hell of it”.

In addition to climbing Everest, he went on several other expeditions, and later in life, was involved with fundraising campaigns in Nepal. They called him The Big Man, or, ‘ Burra Sahib’.

    Thanks Shani, Irma.

    Irma – are you sure your not just describing a tasty snack? Pringles perhaps?

    Look, Rey. It’s your choice if you want to go getting all emotional over pringles, but don’t let me catch you crying and eating, or I might be forced to laugh at the delicious irony.
