17 1 Tashi Pays Yak Herders, Jerome Ryan Throws Rocks Into Kharta Chu, Looking Back At Road To Kharta, Shane And Jerome Ryan Enjoy A Soft Drink At Peruche [37 of 37]
The next morning I watched Tashi pay each of the Tibetans. I walked to the edge of the river, and threw some rocks in the river. One of the boys popped his head up from the book to see what I was doing. I donít know if this is a common pastime here, but before you know it, he was standing next to me throwing rocks. The rest soon followed and we had a great time splashing the rocks in the river, throwing them across the river, and trying to hit specific boulders that stuck out of the water. We waved goodbye and jumped into the Landcruisers to start our drive to Everestís North Base Camp near the Rongbuk monastery. At Peruche Shane and I enjoyed our first soft drink in a couple of weeks.
