This hilarious book is testament to Alec’s time, set in the breath-taking beauty of the Himalayas, where he enjoyed fly infestations at state banquets, unexpected deliveries of live snakes, lots of yaks and best of all, a Miss Tibet competition.

Alec is now back home in his native Jersey, where life must seem tame compared to Tibet!
