  2. Kia ora Pupuke,

    I really like the pictures that you have included in your blog today. They really capture each of the important elements of the story - Sir Edmund Hillary, his sherpa Tenzing and the mountain itself.

    Do you think that you would ever like to follow in Sir Edmund's footsteps and climb Mt Everest? I don't know that I would. It is a pretty intrepid (brave) thing to do! I am sure that both Tenzing and Sir Hillary would have been incredibly excited when they achieved their goal and reached the top of the mountain. Apparently, they flew the Union Jack flag (the British flag) rather than the American flag or the New Zealand flag because they had been climbing the mountain with a group of mountaineers from Britain. I think that it's a shame that the NZ flag wasn't planted on the top of Everest given that Edmund Hillary was from Auckland. What do you think?

    Keep up the great work with your blogging!

    Cheers,
    Rachel
