Picture of the week 11


stiff-porridge.jpg

After the acclimation hike to Klute Peak our hunger had vanished for the first but not the last time on the mountain.
This was our third dinner on the trail at Shira 1 Camp. The green stuff is spinach and the brown stuff was curry chicken. On a good day I like both of these items. Our true challenge was the white glob which is called stiff porridge. It wasn’t rice, noodle or potato that I could tell. I’ll describe it as a cross between wallpaper paste and foam insulation.
We forced the curry and spinach down but the porridge remained untouched.
We hated not eating what was prepared for us because our cook took great pride in feeding us well, as he did every day on the mountain, but thankfully we never saw the glob again.
