Vodka, Vodka and more vodka
The White Spider, by Heinrich Harrer (1959), Granada paper cover edition (1983), p 98, from Harrer’s account of the first ascent of the Eiger north face, 1938:I was wide awake by now and fully restored. I could hardly feel the cold anymore. There, close by me, on its little level spot, stood the cooker.“I’ll brew you some tea, Anderl,” I said. “It always helps.”Tea is surely the king of all drinks. It helps against cold, it helps against the heat, against discomfort and sickness, against weariness and weakness. And it helped on this occasion too.
