'Are human rights universal?',interesting topic, I wish I could be there and listen to some lectures. Albert seemed to have good time there and looking at his face he got emotionally involved what mean he was passionate about topic.

It appears PA speaks alot at those gatherings. He appears to be a favorite over there! So, he certainly must be liked or at least appreciated for what he has to say.

I am sorry if I'm nuts. But... I just saw some pic on line about Albert and their captions say he is preparing to trip to North Pole. But I would somehow believe NiceMartin. Pics' author made misteke probably, why would PA go to North pole again in so short time period. So he is probably heading South, especially that it is summer in southern hemisphere...

I you can't see pics, type : albert monaco" in search.

Thumbs up

Smdouglas, it was fast. Thanks. So they made it official. I hope this trip will have at least the same media coverage as trip to North Pole in 2006.

Agreed, smdouglas, it is sorta too cold on North Pole. You already posted the best proof that PA is going in opposite direction. Media people confuse Arctic with Antarctic or someone cut them access to Monaco Websites or what...

Prince Albert II of Monaco tested Mitsubishi's electric car in Monaco, December 12,
2008. In a statement released by Mitsubishi, the prince is quoted as saying that
the i-MiEV is the kind of car that represents "the future, and I am happy that your
company is going forward in this direction." He further commented, according to the
statement, that the i-MiEV seemed "ready for practical use in a city area".
The company currently is field testing the car in Japan, New Zealand, Europe and the U.S..

It was very sporting of him to go into the freezing water, bearing in mind what atrocious weather the Cote d'Azur and Alpes Maritimes have had in the last 2-3 weeks.
