One night, during our trek to Everest Base Camp, we stayed in a guesthouse which had security bars on the windows and doors. Kio was convinced the bars were a precaution against the Yetis that were undoubtedly living undetected in the mountains. He drew this picture and told me the story of the Dyatlov Expedition, and after hearing that, I made him walk me down the dark hallway to the bathroom.
In the morning, we showed the owners of the hostel this drawing and asked about the bars on the windows. They didn’t believe in Yetis and said the bars were there to keep out robbers. Kio didn’t believe them.
The mystery of the Yeti remains.
