1. Lovely Andorra La Vella.

Featured: July 2004

(...)I didn't choose Andorra. Don't think I would've even if I had beaten him home. I mean where is Andorra anyway? It sounds like a South American country at the foot of the Andes. One that makes use of yaks and lamas (you know, the non-spitting species) to drag skiers to the tops of their snowcapped mountains, where sherpers sell black coffee and bottled oxygen in exchange for ballpoint pens! I mused with a smile at my initial impressions as the ski lift effortlessly wafted us up into the icy blue sky, way above the snow white and perfectly groomed slopes of one of Andorra's five ski resorts. This little excuse for a country measures a massive 25km north to south and 29 km east to west, lies nestled between Catalunya and France, and boasts some of the most dramatic scenery and best skiing in the Pyrenees.

Many people had climed Mt Everest before 1953 but didn't get to the top. Edmond Hillary, a New Zealander, was credited as the first to reach the summit. He was assisted by a Sherper, Tenzing Norgay (sorry not sure of the spelling). Some suggest that Tenzing was actually the first to the summit but Ed got the credit

Sir Edmund Hillary in Palace of Culture

Sir Edmund Hillary gave the final lecture of his visit to Prague at
the Palace of Culture November 5.
Aided by two transalators, Hillary talked to an audience of 2,500.
Bright slides accompanied the script as the guest of honor described his
days as a mountain climber and fundraiser.
Hillary, who reached the top of Mt. Everest in 1953 with fellow
climber the Sherpa Tenzing Norkay, was approached in 1961 by the Sherper
head lama. "Our children have eyes, but they can not see," the lama
said. "They must have an education." Since then, Hillary has been
helping the Himalayan Sherpers build schools and hospitals, both laying
stones and raising money.
