Entry #039: Thursday, October 24, 2013 (Bangkok, Thailand)

Hey there! It's been a while. Not that I've been lazy! At least, no more than usual. No, it's because I was in the Himalayas without a PC. Yeah, I know I said I'd put up a "gone fishin'" interlude post but...that never happened. (*Cough.*) If you're wondering about my Everest Base Camp blog/podcast "spectacular" (and I don't use those quotation marks lightly), that'll be up shortly; the audio (all 7+[!] hours of it) is all uploaded online; I just need to get the post organized. And once it's up, this entire paragraph will be rendered obsolete!

Speaking about obsolescence, how about me? Hey, remember that I was in Singapore? Of course not, because that just happened. I was planning on writing from Singapore (being, like Hong Kong, one of those places that just needs a single name, no "City, Country" format required), but as I'll explain in a bit more detail later, I have three options of things to do on this trip - planning to do things, doing things, and reviewing things I've done (either by writing or sorting through photos). My time in Singapore was mainly spent on the first two. But why take my word for it? Let's get into the haps for what happened since I left Kathmandu!

It's the Mount Everest Base Camp Podcast spectacular! Huzzah! As you may remember, back when I trekked to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, I made an multimedia entry which had a few photos and an epic two-hour-plus video, where you could see me and my disgusting hobo beard talk about and show the mountain. This is mainly because I didn't want to bring my laptop up, and it was too long and tiresome to write in a physical journal. And it worked fine - for a nine-day hike. Just about used up every free megabyte in my phone. No way I could make that stretch for an extra five days. So, I thought to eschew video. What does that leave us with? A podcast! Those are still a thing, right?
