Meat transportation Khumbu style. After having been on the back of a porter for several days, baked in the searing sun and pecked by sparrows, your 'yak steak' arrives ready to eat.

Yak dung is an important fuel source in the Khumbu. Here it's being dried on the walls before being loaded into the fire. Note the hand prints on the dung.

Laundry day after Island Peak. Jen joined the local girl for some washing action in the icy cold water. They were right on the main path through the village, so had a lot of curious onlookers. A couple of German girls even stuck their fingers in the water to see if it was really cold... What a pair of wimps, Jen says.
