Eternal Snow

Due to global warming, the snows of Kilimanjaro and the other highest peaks on the planet are constantly melting. How long will it be before they completely disappear? Ten or fifteen years, maybe twenty?
You will stay watchful and get ready to capture those last moments.
You’ll be accompanied by a strong and rugged child, dressed with a hat, gloves, and a scarf. When you get to the top, the kid will make a snowball with the last remnants of snow.
You will bring it back as fast as pos­sible so as not to break the cold chain and place it under a tempe­rature controlled isothermal glass bell.
Like a jewel in a case, the snowball will be on permanent exhibition in a public space, a museum, or in your home…as long as possible…

You reminisce now about those carefree winters and snowball fights around a snowman…
