I got my hair cut today at lunch time in Kendal, and I learned that it’s only 4,662 miles to Everest from the town centre! Why does it take so long and involve so much effort to go such a relatively small distance? It’s less than half way to Australia and I can be there is less than a day…
Update: I wanted to find out how long this fingerpost has been in the town centre as I don’t remember it being there before. So a bit of Googling later, I’ve learnt that the new fingerpost was unveiled very recently on Friday 26th October as part of a day of celebrations marking 20 years of the town’s twinning with Rinteln, Germany.
