We’re famous! Well, kind of.
Sitting around the yak dung stove in a lodge in Machermo, we were telling the story about coming over that pass in Tibet and mistaking Cho Oyu for Mt. Everest. Remember when I jumped out of the car oohing and aahing about how beautiful Everest was while I was photographing Cho Oyu?
Just as I was getting to the punch line, a Malaysian guest named Kit blurted out, “Oh, and you weren’t photographing Everest, you were photographing Cho Oyu by mistake! Yeah, I read about that on the Internet.”
We looked at him in disbelief. It turns out that he had stumbled on to ContemporaryNomad.com while researching the Everest region for his trip to Nepal. How weird is that?
