Day 87 of the Himalayan Expedition: What a day!
On the one hand, I'm all out of salt beef, the mountain pass is blocked by snow and my sherpa has left me to attend his high school reunion. On the other hand, I met the best mythical creature!
Just after daybreak I followed some size-30 footprints into a cave, where I was enticed by the smell of a freshly-baked pumpkin pie! Much to my surprise, the pastry chef was a towering, fuzzy, snow-covered Yeti! He had plenty of pie to share, and it sure as heck beat salt beef! We spent the afternoon chowing down, playing Minecraft, and watching Nepalese game shows.
Now I don't know what I want more: my own DVD of Who Wants to Own Lots of Yaks?
, or my very own snow-beast to snuggle with once I return home! I think I'll take the Yeti!
