Norway hires sherpas from Nepal to build paths in the Norwegian mountains. They have completed over 300 projects, and their pay for one summer, equals 30 years of work in Nepal.
In 1953, the British kicked off their successful Mt Everest expedition by inviting its members to their embassy. While the climbers were housed in luxury, the Sherpas were put in garages without beds or toilets. Infuriated, the Sherpas retaliated by lining up and urinating on the front lawn.
