Olympic torch passes through U of A

13 January 2010. Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

1800. Although not exactly research or expeditions, this event is nevertheless of world relevance.

Approximately one hour ago, the torch of the 2010 Winter Olympics passed through the University of Alberta. The torch-bearers were flanked by enthusiastic students and families who cheered the flame on.

The temperature was a balmy 17.6 degrees Fahrenheit (-6 degrees Celsius). Partly cloudy skies. The caravan used a complete fleet of hybrid vehicles plus, of course, human power.

Well, that is certainly something! Only somehow I think I'd pay more attention if the torch-bearer had been an ornithomimid of some sort. ;-P
