Two mugs and a mountain (Annapurna 1 I think, 8091 metres), M.B.C, Day 3

Fowler was pleased that even at 3700 metres and going strong for the top, there was still time for a nice cup of tea.

MBC is the Machhapuchhre Base Camp. The friendly owner of this guest house told us about his families exploits in the British Army as Gurkhas and some of the mountaineers who have stayed at his house only never to be seen ever again, a reminder to be careful. Surprised about how fast we were doing the trek he thought we were in the army also, which made the pair quite smug. Posted by Picasa
