Brasshopper in Tibet 2009

It was an arduous trip, without doubt. Despite all the warnings, nowt prepared poor Brasshopper for it. It was bad enough for me (I was one of three that couldn't do the trek, cos of altitude sickness), but there wasn't  an oxygen mask that'd fit the poor blighter....................and those giant Himalayan Hares; they scared the shit out of him.

At least he'll have a rest with Tim in The Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia - although he'll no doubt get loadsa hangovers!

Cheers
Lionel
