Thought For The Day

   Nadai Rakovsky {if that is indeed her name} might have been an Olympic bronze medalist at the age of 17 {No.2 himself seems surprised about that} after trying to escape the Village by simming away. "I could not swim so far," as she tells No.6. Why? That is because there is a world of difference from swimming in a cosy Olympic swimming pool, and "wild swimming" in open water. There are tides, currents, the water could be ice cold. Besides Nadia is now a middle aged woman, and would not have maintained all that training that got her that Olympic Bronze medal.

Be seeing you
