Disagreement

So, for over 2 years now Petr has been saying with a scoff, "Mountains! What mountains?" whenever I talk about the mountains in Georgia. I've always been a bit miffed about his disdain, but didn't say anything since he is the European and Europe is, after all, the land of well known mountain peaks.

Well, today I decided I'd had enough of his mountain snobbery and did a bit of research. From my dear friend, Mr. Google, I learned that Georgia's highest mountain is Brasstown Bald and reaches 4784 feet above sea level. And Petr's section of Moravia's highest peak is Radhost and boasts 3704 feet - yes, that is right, dear Readers - 1080 feet less than in GA!! In all of Moravia the highest mountain Praded is 4895 feet above sea level (a mere 111 feet taller than B.B.).

When I "broke the news" to Petr he didn't believe me. I had to show him the official web pages where I'd found my information and then also pictures of Brasstown Bald to prove it really is a mountain before he begrudgingly conceded to the truth.
