Mamas Don’t Want Their Babies To Grow Up & Be Sherpas

According to this interview with a graduate of the Sherpa Education Fund:

Sherpas don't want their sons to become mountaineers,’ says my guide Tsiring Sherpa, 22, who was tasked with delivering me from the airport in the Himalayan town of Lukla to Everest Base Camp. ‘They want them to be engineers and move out to the Western world."
