Stewart Clark: A pair of skies?
Here I am referring to the interesting profile story about Francesca Sargolini in UA last week which started fine (at least for the first 25 words) before the skis soared 20 to 30 kilometres upwards to make Francesca (according to the reporter) a contender for the 2006 Guinness Book of World Records. Let me quote the opening: "When in Rome, do as the Romans do”. With this proverb in mind, neuroscientist Francesca Sargolini from the Italian capital enjoys stumbling around on a pair of skies when in Trondheim."
Is this about par for the course? It reminds me of the six large supports outside the entrance to Dr. Holms Hotel in Geilo with the heavenly message ´Your skies are your own responsibility. Ski på eget ansvar´.
