It’ll be all over everywhere in a few minutes but news this morning that Sir Edmund Hillary, Kiwi hero, first person to ascend Mt Everest and adventurer extraodinaire has passed away.

A sad day for New Zealand, Hillary was indeed the quintessential kiwi.

Here’s to “knocking the bugger off”, adieu Sir Ed.

  • while I was in Oz I actually met the photographer from that expedition. He was very interesting, very old, and had some very interesting little insights into that expedition. It was amazing to hear him talk about it and see his photography.
