The CDC said if you're fully vaccinated, and if you believe Joe Biden won Nevada and Georgia, then you can go mask-less in-doors and outdoors with some exceptions. You should wear a mask if you are in the health care profession, or if you're attending a 100,000 plus religious rally in India. Other than that, you can now start saying "who was that mask-less woman?"
If you know Rumpole, then you know we are avid followers of mountaineering. This is the climbing season in Everest. Two climbers lost their lives in the last few days. Both climbers were part of the Seven Summits Treks, an organization that organizes Everest climbs. American Piwei Liu 51, died this week after making an unsuccessful summit attempt. Abdul Waraich 41, of Switzerland, died after summiting Everest and on the way down. If you know about Everest, then you know that the most dangerous part of the climb is the climb down after summiting. If you haven't summited by early morning and haven't cleared the Hillary Step before noon, you are in grave danger (is there any other kind? Name the movie) of getting caught in a storm and dying on the way down.
