The nice man at the counter gave us both discounts, me for being a student and Irvin for being with a student. And then again a nauseating ride on the cable-car. But this time I was able to see three chamois on our way up and two on our way down. I love those animals, living risky lives and all.
Up on the mountain, Irvin got a fright at how high up we were, what with seeing the whole snow clad area beneath us.
So I decided, I better get him fed, what with heavy Kasnockn and a beer, he would be too drowsy to complain.
And up to the second peak we went... not without considerable difficulties. He was wearing the wrong shoes and not knowing how to walk up the steep slopes and being unwilling to slide down, I had to lead him by the hand. Midway, I saw a guy standing there with the really wrong shoes and joked about how Irvin would make it, because even the guy with those completely wrong shoes had... when the guy laughed and said, he was just waiting here for his friend to come back from the peak, because he was unable to go on.
Well, with a lot of pursuading, Irvin went on too and we were able to hug the cross.
I was thrilled, with the sun shining and all, but Irvin even sang... like the japanese girls did. I guess the mountain-air does that to people... like I really wanted to go to another peak. There is a skiing route all over the ridge, but Irvin was quite satisfied with his achievements and I had to be back in Uni by five.
So, there we are, on top of the world...
