Miss Sarajevo

This song by U2 has always held a special place in my heart. I was in Bosnia in'98. What a beautiful place it could have been. To know the possibilities of a place and to see what it became, you would understand the why free markets are important and how central planning fails.

The translation for the Italian part of Miss Sarajevo

You say that the river
finds the way to the sea
And as the river
you'll come to me
Beyond the borders
and the thirsty lands
You say that as river
As river
Love will come
And I cannot pray anymore
And I cannot hope in love anymore
And I cannot wait for love anymore

I understand you have your own training schedule, but if I may suggest, cool down on the weigth workout, loose 10-15 lbs (extra bulk including) and run a bit more. It is hard to carry stocky body over 13,000 feet peaks. I should know. I bulk up easily.
