What the Big Mountain Taught Me.

Journey of Dreams

Prayer Flags at Everest Base Camp

ImageTraditionally, prayer flags come in sets of five, one in each of five colors. The five colors represent the elements of the earth, and are arranged from left to right in specific order: blue, white, red, green, and then yellow. Different elements are associated with different colors for specific traditions and purposes.

  • blue symbolises sky/space
  • white symbolises air/wind
  • red symbolises fire
  • green symbolises water
  • yellow symbolises earth.

According to the Buddhists, health and harmony are produced through the balance of the five elements.

Burj Khalifa (Day)

Burj Khalifa is a skyscraper in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and is currently the tallest man-made structure ever built, at 828 m (2,717 ft).

The Burj Khalifa is roughly three times the height of the Eiffel Tower, 15 times the highest point at Niagara Falls and almost twice as tall as the Empire State Building.

There was so much rebar used to construct this building—31,400 metric tons, in fact—that if it were all laid end to end it would cover more than a quarter of the way around the world.
