THE (YELLOW) SNOWS OF KILIMANJARO ...!

                             

Ace Photographer Kovar regaled the crowd at 7th and Montana with further details of his upcoming trip to Kilimanjaro.  Kovar is shooting a documentary covering the exploits of Keats Boyd, a 7-year-old boy who aims to become the youngest person ever to reach the top of the 20,000-foot volcano.  In the words of Katie Couric, who aired a piece on Keats on tonight's CBS Evening News, "Keats has a climbing instinct like no monkey you've ever met."  To prepare for the adventure, Keats and his father, Bryan, have been practicing hiking for five miles a day in the Hollywood Hills.  As for Kovar, rumor has it he's been practicing urinating in a paper cup.  The expedition -- a fundraiser for The Jane Goodhall Institute and the Kids of Kilimanjaro -- leaves early next week.  Good luck, Kovar!

The world would be a better place if we all hiked five miles a day, now excuse me while I sip my full fat Starbucks latte. ~Mary

I've never actually "met" any monkeys, so I'll have to take their word for it. It's nice to see a parent let their kid just "go for it" when the child takes an interest in something. --Cin

Sounds like an exciting expedition.  I can't imagine my 7 year old caring about such an endevor.
