Yak Week, Part 4

Today: Yaks take Manhattan! Or at least, yaks take the modest little villages that the trail to Everest Base Camp passes through.

Fun fact: In Nepalese, only a male yak is called a "yak." A female is called a "nak." Some will thus claim that those referring to all yaks as yaks are doing so in error. Those people are pompous asses. Sorry snobs, but in English, every yak is a yak.

I'm loving this yak series! Is there a yak clean-up crew trailing behind somewhere???
