Next time I put up a photo, I will go for one of me having had a shave and a haircut, and wearing a nice suit, I think. (I actually do look respectable at least some of the time).

Just out of interest, in this photo I am sitting at the top of Mt Lobuje East, and I am around 6100 metres above sea level. As you can see, Everest is somewhat higher (approx 8800 metres). The photo is taken with an extremely wide lens (19mm), so you can see the valleys below as well as the mountains above. As a consequence, Everest is actually nearer than it looks. It is about three kilometres above me, and also about three or four kilometres away in the horizontal sense.
