The point of joint returns

No matter where you go, if it’s a pretty site, there’s Asians planning a wedding shoot. Sir Edmund Hillary the first to climb Everest? I don't think so. The only reason Tensing Norgay knew his way around Mt. Everest so well is because he’d taken Asian wedding parties there on a photo shoot just a few months prior. Eric the Red, Columbus, Magellan, all their travelogues omitted encounters with Asian wedding parties. To sound more impressive, I guess. Marco Polo might mention them, but I’ve only read as far as getting to the Mongol court.
