Great work, Jk!
Jamboree itself: is amazing, as events of crazy youth, crammed together in a tight spot always are. But the organisation is a bit slack ... not nearly as good as it should be. But there's 40 000 of us at the last estimations (!) and such magnitude of people is always hard to control and keep satisfied. They are also expecting to see 70 000 daily visitors in eight days, so about 9,000 per day. (I'll be there, to mann them onto and into the site, get them to laugh and stuff).
The opening ceremony.
For some of the girls, though, it's been quite thrilling as well: young master William walked unto the stage and wore a scarf .. nice touch:)
Looking quite serious about it on the photo, though.
And he SHOULD be! 'cause there's enough grief and sorrow in the world to last us for a lifetime (Tibet, Uganda, Sudan, East bank, ..., Palestine refugees, ... stuff ... and all the countries of the "third" world. (
Though he might have just been worriying that he might get crampled and suffocated to death by the weight of all the oncoming scarfs of scouts that they were giving them to him:)
We have facts written ob boards here, cause it's a one world, one promise THINGY (Blazh, eat yourself) and we have sort of sworn we'd try really hard to overcome difficulties of todays' world. And we come back to the Cree prophecy, don't we:) Here it said: An average Englishman uses about 135 litres of freshwater every day. In Zimbabwe, a person uses 4.5 litres a day. Amongst other things.
Peace in, Aljaz:)
