They say one should never prematurely reveal the ending of a story, lest your readers lose interest and not read your writings that lead up to said ending.
Nevertheless, it will take me a while to get all of my experiences and stories from the last 15 days of trekking properly compiled, written, and edited for public consumption that I thought, what the heck – I’ll just quickly relish in this tiny bragging right I’ve earned myself and tell you that….
I MADE IT TO MOUNT EVEREST BASE CAMP!
Yes I did. All 5,364m of it.
And I shall leave the announcement at that for now 🙂 Those of you just keen to know if I’ve made it, can perhaps rejoice in having to type my blog URL for the last time in your web-browsers today haha. Those of you who are curious to know of the tales, trials, and tribulations (hah! There’s me dramatizing things in a shameless bid to add drama to my blog) of my journey to get to Everest Base Camp can still spare the negligible few kilobytes of your computer’s disk space and keep this website bookmarked in your folder, if you wish (or keep clicking on those convenient Facebook/Twitter shortcut links that appear every time I post an entry. Isn’t technology a nifty li’l thing, ey!)
As of today my astounding trekking trip has come to an end, but at this moment I am still within the mountains; a more civilized section of it, complete with overrated-coffee-chain dopplegangers offering free Wi-Fi for an overpriced cup of coffee, that city-establishment-deprived tourists like me happily pay for. My dad and I have our flight back to Kathmandu arranged for tomorrow morning, after which we will plan on our subsequent flight home.
Soundtrack: Belle and Sebastian – Funny Little Frog
Location: Starbucks (albeit a faux one), Lukla, Nepal
Random thought: I miss a good, tasty, crunchy, fatty, salty, bad-for-your-health juicy piece of fried chicken
