Are these people real?
Meneer Peters just tried to climb up Mt Aconcagua, the highest mountain in the Andes. He has failed, suffering from altitude sickness.
I promise you - I am not making this next bit up.....
Peters had tried to climb the highest mountain in the Andes - with 18 asthma patients.
It gets better.... while the PM is recovering, the asthma patients are still trying at this time to reach the summit. I wish them well!
The PM has attracted some criticism at home for this stunt, as he was supposed to attend a crucial budgetary debate in one of Belgium's numerous parliaments. One would ordinarily assume that a Prime Minister would turn up for such an event, but as I have noted before, this is no ordinary capital city!
