My Quest for the Yeti: Confronting the Himalayas' Deepest Mystery - Reinhold Messner

So, does he or does he not have permission to be where he is?

 

Considering he seems to have a lot of trouble with Chinese police, are his problems caused by him not having papers or by the Chinese police being obstructive?

Don't know why I keep doing this to myself
Royals (2017-) #7 - Kevin Libranda,Al Ewing,Sanford Greene

But I do!  

 

Barely series is barely bearable, and yet I want to know what happens to the Inhumans, including Medusa and Gorgon.   

 

So I keep on trucking.  I may unsubscribe if this doesn't get better soon, though...

My Quest for the Yeti: Confronting the Himalayas' Deepest Mystery - Reinhold Messner

I just finished a chapter where Messner goes into the mythological aspect of the yeti myth, the sightings of the actual creature and the finding of numerous foot prints, and I have to admit, I´m really enjoying this book so far.

Even though I don´t get why Messner becomes so obsessed with the yeti in the first place (he himself doesn´t give a proper explanation either). And he is slightly obsessed I think, as shown during his first meeting with his girlfriend Sabine after the yeti incident (he thinks she has left him during his treck through Tibet):

 

Seeing Sabine was more a shock than a relief. I stood, silent and apprehensive. She also just stood there, staring at me. I couldn´t think straight. After all the excitement, the anticipation, the hope and fear, the dread of not finding her, I was too bewildered to embrace her. I was still so obsessed by the thought that she might have left forever that I was incapable of even asking how she was.

 

"I saw a Yeti", I blurted out suddenly, breaking the silence.

Why do I even bother?

Ewing is okay sometimes, but of course he's going to bring Black Bolt's wives back in because that wasn't weird enough the first time around. 

 

Black Bolt?   So much better than this series.   But I expect they'll converge at some point and I'm too into the Inhumans in Spaaaaace concept to give up on this yet.   Also, I have at least a couple issues I already bought that are unreturnable.   

 

Also, this would be way better with pig-muppets in my opinion.
