Berlusconi claims he’ll be stepping in the end the Naples trash crisis.  While that would be nice to believe, Sivlio doesn’t have the best rep for doing what’s best for Italians.

Top of the World Trash

Tuesday, July 1, 2008

Climbers left 120 tons of trash on the China face of Everest last year.   That side will be closed for trash pick up for the time being.  On the other side, Nepal charges big fines to those who don’t come down the mountain with all the equipment they took up. I wonder how all of this fits into China-Tibet politics.
