Cast of characters:

Polish Australian – skinny, spindly, wore gigantic floppy hat and ridiculously short shorts, Australian who spoke bad English, totally excited to see us every single time, Jiri to base camp in 11 days

Angry Australian couple – angry, particularly the girl because her boyfriend forced her to do the worst trek in the world, miserable every time we saw her

Team Heroic – name forced by Captain Claw aka Claw Hand, 3 Irish blokes, basically our BFFs on the trail, we would reserve each other hotel rooms but they would get a fancy room and let us shower for free, promised to be our Ireland tour guides when we come, we know they are thrilled, could not find them our last night in Kathmandu for drinks, Lindsey and Jon may in fact know each other from previous travel lives. The 3 members are:

Ken (claw hand) – overdosing on diamox because got claw hands last month in Tajikistan, talks non-stop, scared of dogs, claims he hates meeting new people but evidence suggests otherwise, also claims to hate cards but always plays and in fact is the only one carrying cards, has a tuna addiction problem, is a luddite

Jon – once represented Ireland in dance competition, the most technologically advanced as he has a facebook page, always lets Lindsey finish his dinner plate, used to call him the cute one on the trail but now its awkward because he will read this

Paul – his idea to climb so they all have someone to blame, loved his school teacher a little too much, is above gambling 10 rupees on blackjack, gave us money when ours was stolen

UK trekking team - large trekking team from the UK that as Brit would say "we annihilated up the mountain", members include: NOTE: this team does not oppose yak abuse.

Leader from Bhutan - hated us until Brittany left, thereafter unexplained touchiness occurred, loved to wear Tibetan scarves, told Brittany he felt sorry for her life

Brother from wedding crashers - the creepy one, enough said

3 bald guys - though we were loud, liked to drink, said we were their entertainment

Rat face - non-stop bitchfest, looked like a rat, God forbid you give her a chocolate mouse instead of pudding

Rat face's husband - always sitting down, lazy one of the group

Carl's twin - always congested, loved us the most, looked suspiciously like Carl from Coffee Bay

Trekking Friends - 2 couples who met on Macchu Pichu, like to drink more than they like to trek

this is now my favorite cast of characters.

Ok first of all you spelled his name wrong. Its John... with and H. Why do I know this? Because I am a creepy stalker on facebook and this John character posted pictures of you girls a while ago. I have been anxiously awaiting his appearance on the Blog. I think Im even more excited now that I know he has an Irish accent...

And the camera is broken??? this makes me sad
