back from the top of the world

sorry for the silence. i have only just now returned from a 10 day trek into the forbidding indian himilayas, where i found my way to the base of the mountain with the 3rd highest peak on earth (i made it to something just shy of 16000 feet). the trek was somewhat of an ordeal (freezing every night, shitting in the snow, fighting off altitude sickness, etc.), which i will detail in my next post. now if you'll excuse me, i need to take my first shower in 10 days, as i'm sure the people around me would agree.
